American Business Awards 2016: Video Awards Judging Committee

Posted by Maggie Gallagher on Fri, Mar 25, 2016 @ 03:08 PM

When most people think of business awards, they might invision recognition only for executives or huge companies. In the Stevie Awards' programs, this is not the case. Creative awards categories for organizations of all sizes are offered just as much as the more mainstream company or executive categories.

Today we would like to recognize the judging chair and committee who will review the 2016 American Business Awards Video Awards nominations. The Video Awards categories range  from Best Branded Entertainment Video to Best Sales: Technology video.

There is still time to submit nominations in The ABAs. If your video is award worthy, review the entry kit here. The extended final entry deadline is April 19. These video award categories  are also some of the most simple to enter because the videos comprise most of the entry.
