  • You Be The JudgeAll judging is done online so judges will be able to review nominations on their own time and at their own pace.
  • Judges will be assigned categories based on their experience, function, and industry.
  • There is no limit to how many (or how few) nominations judges can review.

What are the benefits of being a Stevie Awards judge?

  • Judges get an inside look at how other organizations and individuals are achieving success and confronting challenges. 
  • All active judges will receive a certificate of appreciation, suitable for framing.
  • All judges will have a chance to win two free tickets to the November 2012 awards dinner in New York City.
