Preliminary judging is now open for The 2013 American Business Awards, the top business awards competition in the USA, and you're invited to participate. Interested? See the introduction and application page on the ABA web site.
Preliminary judging will continue through early May and this important stage of judging determines the Finalists. Even if you've already entered or plan to enter the ABAs this year, you can still participate in the judging process, because you can still judge categories in which your organization is not an entrant.
How does preliminary-round judging work?
- All 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. The ABAs have many different categories: PR awards, marketing awards, HR awards, customer service awards, web awards, management awards, and more.
- There is no limit to how many (or how few) nominations judges can review.
