Nominations for the LGBTQ+ Defence Awards 2023 are now closed.
The winners are decided by the judges based on the information provided in the written submissions. The submissions that explain why the nominee should win in the most detail, within the word limit of 1,000 words, will stand the best chance. They should detail individual achievements and contributions to success, and where possible include quantitative information, such as revenues, profits, margins, cost savings, efficiency gains, productivity gains, returns on investment, customer wins or anything else that demonstrates that individual’s contributions to a business. Testimonials from colleagues, partners or customers can also enhance a nomination. Please note, any information marked as confidential will remain as such. The judges will refer to the criteria of each award (see here) when judging it, so nominations should adhere to this closely. Submissions that are less than 550 words in length will not be considered. There is no cost to nominate. The editorial and judging teams reserve the right to move submissions to different categories should they be better suited. Good luck!
