Nominees for the Global Energy Show Awards will be selected from proposals submitted to the judging panel. Early submission is particularly important to ensure that the judging panel has ample time to review the proposals. Late submissions will not be accepted.

Step 1 – Review Award Categories

Review the list of categories and corresponding questions for each category to determine the category that best fits the company or individual that you would like to nominate. A primary choice is required.

  • If you submitted in previous years, do not submit the exact same information again for 2023
  • Limit of three submissions per organization, please coordinate within your organization on which three categories you would like to focus on
  • All submissions must pertain to a 2022/2023 initiative

Step 2 – Complete Your Submission

All abstract submissions will need to be submitted electronically through the online submission form by the February 3, 2023 deadline.

  • Ensure that you have all the required questions completed before you begin
  • The same submission may not be submitted for more than one category. If the same submission is submitted more than once, all submissions after the first entry will automatically be disqualified from consideration

Step 3 – Judging Process

After you have submitted your submission for consideration the judging panel will review all submissions after the February 3, 2023 deadline.

The judging panel will review the submissions based on a list of criteria given to them ahead of time.

  • All submitters will be notified by email to the main contact person indicated in the online submission form of the status of their submission by March 31, 2023.
  • Final nominees will be provided with further instructions and next steps at this time
  • Nominated individuals and companies will be offered special discounted individual or table rates to attend the awards ceremony. If nominees are not able to personally attend the ceremony, nominees will need to send a representative

The key to developing an effective submission is to provide the judging panel with a submission that is clear, concise and with specific information about how the candidate has fulfilled the requirements of the award for which you are nominating them.

As the submitter it is your responsibility to work with the other individuals who are providing support for the nomination to tell your nominee’s story. Remember that the members of the judging panel do not know most of the individuals who are nominated so you need to tell them about how your nominee meets and exceeds the requirements of the award for which they are being nominated. Do not assume that an individual/companies reputation precedes them – you must tell the story.

  1. Start with a clear, concise and specific opening statement about what the individual/ company does within the industry. Avoid making the sentence vague and full of generalities. This will be used for marketing purposes to inform the public why they were selected in the case your submission was chosen to be a nominee/winner. Every sentence counts.
  2. Be prepared in such a manner that the requirements of the award match the characteristics of the nominee. Be sure to read the requirements for the award.
  3. Be concise. Even though each member of the nominating team will likely provide overlapping information about the nominee, it is not useful to mention the same characteristics multiple times. Use the allotted space to offer unique examples that support the nominee’s fit to the award for which they are being nominated.
  4. Be explicit. It is best to give specific examples of how the nominee has met or exceeded the requirements for the award. It is not useful to offer a statement noting that the nominee is excellent. Data and specific information are required to support the claim. This is particularly true in situations where the nominee has gone above and beyond the expectations of their role within the industry.
  5. Proofread your submission. It is your responsibility as the submitter to ensure that there are no typos and that the document flows smoothly and tells your nominee’s story. Be sure that the materials are focused on the individual/company being nominated and that all information is from a project/initiative that was developed in 2022/2023.
  6. End with a concise closing statement that summarizes and reinforces the outstanding attributes of your nominee that are expected for individuals/companies who are chosen for the award.
