Nominations for the Top Tech Awards are open to the public and are submitted through the Top Tech Awards website. An independent panel comprised of experienced business executives and information technology professionals reviews the nominations and selects the qualified nominees to be further evaluated by the Top Tech Awards judges.
Relying exclusively on the content of the nomination submitted, the judges then score each finalist individually. The scores are tabulated to reveal an honoree in each category.
Employees of sponsor companies are ineligible for consideration. Any nominees that share the same firm as a judge are also not qualified. Honorees are kept strictly confidential until the night of the event.
Nominees can be nominated by anyone, any organization, or can nominate themselves.
Submitted nominations go through a first round nomination elimination to remove unqualified candidates. Judges provide feedback on the nominee’s work.
