C-suite Awards FAQs

 
What criteria is used to evaluate nominees in each category?
 
You can find the criteria for each award on the award category's landing page. Typically, across each award, we are looking to identify leaders who have demonstrated exceptional leadership, innovation, cross-functional collaboration, and business impact.
 
Can individuals self-nominate, or must they be nominated by someone else?
 
We actively encourage individuals to self-nominate or nominate their peers. While we appreciate that third-party nominations may sometimes lack the same detail as first-person applications, we believe that this approach is pivotal to celebrating individuals who may not otherwise come forward, particularly those in minority groups.
 
Are there specific categories or sectors that the C-Suite Awards cover, or is it open to all industries?
 
The HotTopics C-Suite Awards is open to all industries and company sizes.
 
How will the winners be recognised, and what prizes or benefits come with receiving a C-Suite Award?
 
Winners are invited to attend the C-Suite Awards in-person or virtually at The Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, Tennesee, and at Abbey Road Studios in London. During each awards ceremony, winners can take part in live panel debates, short 'spotlight' stories to the audience and collect their award from the HotTopics team.
 
Furthermore, winners receive social media graphics that they can share with their online networks, and they are invited to attend post-event, educational masterclass sessions with industry thought leaders.
 

How can nominees showcase their achievements during the selection process?

We actively encourage individuals to provide us with as much detail as possible during the nomination process. Not only does this help our judges in evaluating each entry, but it often results in a greater chance the nominee makes their respective awards 100 list.
 
Once you have submitted the online form, you'll receive an email with some additional questions to complete. This is your chance to make your achievements (or those of a peer or colleague) stand out from the crowd.
 
Do I need to pay to enter the C-Suite Awards?
 
There is no fee to enter any of our awards. At HotTopics, we pride ourselves on the trust our community puts in us, and the credibility we have built in The Studio, the C-Suite Awards, and our editorial content.
 
I am unable to attend the C-Suite Awards ceremony. Can I still accept it?
 
Yes. The C-Suite Awards is a 12-month series of initiatives so there will be plenty of opportunities to pick up your award at another of our events.
 
Should this not be possible, we can also post your award to your home or office address - but please note this will come at personal expense.
 
Can I find out who voted for me?
 
You are welcome to ask the HotTopics team the question. Please note, however, third-party nominees rarely leave a name, or a reason for their nomination.
 
Can I vote for more than one person?

 

Yes.
