If you're a working professional with experience in your discipline, you'll be assigned categories related to your expertise. The IBAs have many different categories: app awards, customer service awards, HR awards, marketing awards, new product awards, PR awards, website awards, and more. See the introduction and application page on the IBA web site.
Anyone can apply to participate in the preliminary judging of the Stevie® Awards. Interested? Apply online today. If your application is accepted you'll be able to judge online, at your convenience, in May-June 2012.
Being a preliminary round judge has many benefits including:
- Judging is a great badge of honor to put on your resume or CV. Active judges are always acknowledged on the awards web site (here's the list of the 2011 judges) and in the awards dinner program.
- You'll get to read and evaluate a lot of great success stories in your field, whether it's customer service or sales, and there's no better way to measure the pulse of achievement in your professionals, especially when those stories of success are coming from industry leaders.
- The two preliminary judges who score the most entries will receive two free tickets to the 9th annual awards banquet on Monday, 15 October in Seoul, South Korea.
