The Stevie® Awards, organizer of The American Business Awards®, announced today that the final entry deadline for the 17th annual ABA competition has been extended to Wednesday, April 17. Nominations submitted after the original final deadline of March 13 will not incur any additional late fees, and will not be penalized in the judging process in any way.
“We’ve received so many requests for individual deadline extensions that we’ve decided to extend the deadline for everyone,” said Stevie Awards president Michael Gallagher. The original final deadline was March 13.
The American Business Awards are widely considered to be the premier business awards program in the U.S.A. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations— public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large, and small. The 2019 awards will honor achievements since the beginning of 2018. Entry details are available at http://www.StevieAwards.com/ABA.
The American Business Awards recognize achievement in every facet of the workplace. Categories include:
- Entrepreneur Awards
- Management Awards
- Company of the Year Awards
- Customer Service Awards
- Human Resources Awards
- Information Technology Awards
- Marketing Awards
- New Product Awards
- Public Relations Awards
- Website Awards, Smartphone and Tablet Apps, and other Media Awards
In the Marketing, New Product & Service, and Public Relations categories, nominees may now submit a video of up to five minutes in length, instead of the traditional written Stevie Awards essay or case study. In categories for business-related media, there are many new Live Event, Publication, and Video categories.
More than 200 executives on 13 juries have already begun the process of rating nominations to determine the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners.
Stevie winners will be announced on May 1, and the awards will be presented at a gala banquet on June 11 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. Attendance is not required to win.
