I am on the Regional Select Jury for the 2020 Women in Energy Awards. Can I submit an entry?

To maintain transparency in the selection process, as a Regional Select Jury Member you cannot submit a direct entry nor can your business nominate you for the Women in Leadership, Nex Gen Female of the Year, and the Stem Star of the Year award categories.

However, your company can submit an entry for the Employer of the Year Championing Inclusion & Diversity award category.

Can a company/university submit more than one entry?

Yes, a company/university can submit more than one entry in the individual award categories. However, the same person cannot be nominated twice.

Can our joint-venture companies submit their entries separately? If so can parent companies submit an entry on behalf of the JVs?  

Joint ventures, merged and/or acquired companies, and subsidiaries can submit their entries separately if they have a separate brand presence from the parent company, and their HR and inclusion and diversity initiatives.

Do we have a limited number of entries per company/venture?

No. Companies can submit as many entries as they would like per company/venture provided they fit the eligibility criteria.

How are the entries evaluated and scored?

Entries are evaluated and scored on the quality of the submission received. There is a rigorous evaluation process where the Regional Select Jury – comprising of industry leaders and leading academics – review and grade each entry received through an online system.

Scores from the online review are then tabulated and the top seven entries in each category will be shortlisted for a face-to-face interview with jury members in the Regional Select Jury Meeting scheduled to take place on Monday 7 October 2019. 

Following the face-to-face interviews, four finalists will be shortlisted in each category. Finalists will be announced and informed after the Jury meeting. Winners will be kept confidential and announced only during the Awards Ceremony. The Jury’s decision is final and binding.

What format is suitable for the uploaded material?

         The following formats are acceptable when uploading an attachment as a supporting evidence

For texts: pdf

For images: jpg/jpeg, png, tiff

For videos/movies: any video format (examples include mov, flv, avi). The video must be highest possible quality, and must be under 4 minutes. This can also be a link to a website where the video can be seen.

For presentations: pdf, ppt (Ideally you convert ppt files to pdf format; maximum of 10 slides)

Why is there a dateline on the supporting evidence? Why can I not submit evidence from three years ago?

The Women in Energy Awards are annual, and therefore, recognise individual and organisational achievements on an annual basis. Additionally, as the energy sector is rapidly evolving and emphasising on innovation and transformation, employees must adapt to it and hone their skills continuously. Whilst there are many subjective nuances, there is a high probability that what may have been valid and relevant a few years ago, may not be as important today.

I have missed an attachment? What should I do?
