We encourage you to showcase your expertise by entering multiple categories. Don't be shy; this is your moment to shine. Good luck!

Tool tips to make your entry shine

  • Tell your story, but don't write an essay

    Keep it brief: highlight key challenges, share your path to success, and provide tangible results. Make it personal: we want to hear the impacts of your initiatives on your own organization.

  • Back it up with data

    We love data, so where possible, provide specific metrics to quantify your achievements. You can include testimonials from your team to support your submission with stronger proof points.

  • Think about the judges

    Specific judging criteria is listed on each Award entry page, so cross-reference your entry with the details to make sure you have the best possible chance. Each category panel has a mix of senior leaders from Remote, as well as leading influencers in the field of remote working (they know what they’re talking about, so you should focus on outcomes over theory).
