Advice on submitting your nomination

Please submit the nomination form accurately and completely. Make sure you utilise the word limits to their fullest, and follow the criteria instructions for each category sections as closely as possible.

It is important that you provide full, but concise, information about the organisation, project or individual you are nominating.

Focus on explaining what you are doing and why you deserve to win. We know and work with your companies, so keep the introductions to a minimum and focus on getting the crucial bits of information across.

It’s helpful to the judges if you include statistics, numbers and data to demonstrate impact and show progression.

What supporting documentation should I provide?

While you must fill up your nomination form via the website, you will also be able to upload supporting documentation and images prior to submitting the form. Once you submit, all attached documentation and files, along with your completed nomination form, will be uploaded to our secure servers.

What happens after I upload my nomination?

Should your nomination be successful, you will receive an automatically generated confirmation email. Please check both your regular email and junk mail folders, as sometimes, spam filters may stop this email.

If you feel that there might be a problem with your nomination upload, please contact the editorial team at Big Project ME and Middle East Consultant. However, we will not be able to discuss any particular nominations while it is up for consideration, or if it does not succeed in making the final list.

Can I send extra information with my nomination?

All your relevant information for your nomination MUST be included when you submit your nomination form online. Your nomination will only be judged by the information you have uploaded and submitted. If any extra information is required, we will directly contact the relevant company or individual that has been nominated.

Can I tell someone that they have been nominated?

Yes, of course! In fact, we may even contact them to clarify or follow up on nominations.

What will a successful nominee receive if they are chosen by the judges?

Each winner at the Awards will receive a custom designed trophy engraved with the winner’s details and extensive press coverage in both print and online media, along with social media coverage on the night.

Will every group that is nominated receive an award?

The winner for each award is chosen by an independent panel of judges, drawn from across the Middle East construction industry.

While there is only one winner per category, the judges do distinguish two further nominations with a ‘highly commended’ recognition. This will be announced on the night of the awards, prior to the winner being revealed.
