There are two different events in two different days during the AWSummit . In the EXEC Awards we will award the best executives , but also give away the recognition awards , and all the other categories will be part of the main AW Awards gala in a different day than EXEC .
All AW AWARDS sponsors will be able to give away recognition awards to whoever they decide : models , studios , partners , etc.
The first phase is the nomination . Anyone can be nominated according to the category rules listed bellow . Make a fuzz about your nomination using all your available tools (social media , newsletters , etc.) to accumulate votes and points and accede to the final stage .
We filter the results from the previous phase (nominations) and the most popular (with the most votes) 4 to 10 (depending on the category) will accede to the final phase . You will again need to make a fuzz and ask everyone to vote for you or your company .
AW Awards Sponsor's weight more than the others . All sponsors will be able to use their voting points only in the final phase of the competition , not in the first one (nominations).
The companies and individuals involved in the awards show are not eligible for AW Awards nominations. This includes the show hosts , the AWSummit team and NightProwl Studio (founder studio of AWSummit)
