What’s the judging process?

Our judging panel will evaluate all applications for their rigor and worthiness in accordance with our judging rubric. Access the judging rubric here. We will then allow members of The Communications Network to vote for their favorite nominee from a list of 2-3 finalists. Our judging panel will factor that vote into their final calculation and ultimately determine our winner.

What does winning mean?

Winners will receive free travel, lodging, and admission to the conference for two people and will be invited to deliver a keynote session on their work.
