Nominations are being accepted in six categories:
People and projects should be nominated for activities that took place between January 2023 and February 2024, with the exception of the Lifetime Achievement award.
Nominations can be submitted through this online form. The deadline for nominations is March 1, 2024. Winners will be notified in March with presentation of the awards scheduled for April.
