2019 Ruby Awards

Can I nominate myself?

Yes. At the top of your nomination form you will be asked whether you are nominating yourself or someone else. Be sure to check the box marked ‘Yourself’ and the system will automatically copy the contact details associated with your account.

Can I nominate on behalf of an organisation other than my own?

Yes. At the top of your nomination form you will be asked whether you are nominating yourself or someone else. If nominating someone else, you will be asked to fill in the nominee’s contact details (if nominating an organisation, these should be the details of a nominated representative of the organisation).

Is there a set of questions or criteria I need to answer in my application?

Yes. Individual questions pertaining to each award can be found on the second page of the nomination form in the portal. You can also save your progress and return to your nomination as many times as you like before the closing date (5pm Tuesday 8 October 2019).

Is there a word limit for the application?

Somewhere between 500 - 1,200 words is recommended. There is no limit, but keep in mind the judges have a lot of nominations to read through – so the more concise, the better.

Do I need to complete and submit my nomination all in one go?

No. You can save your progress and return to your nomination as many times as you like before the closing date (5pm Tuesday 8 October 2019).

What kind of support materials should I submit?

Support materials are there to ensure the judges have a complete understanding of the nominee, even if they’ve never seen it/heard of it/them before, and why it/they should win the award. They are not compulsory but are recommended to ensure the panel has a full understanding of the nominee. Support materials may include:

  • High quality production images and headshots (recommended)
  • Video footage (trailers, interviews, production footage etc.)
  • Promotional and marketing materials (programs, flyers, postcards etc.)
  • Media clippings (reviews, interviews, articles etc.)
  • Audience and community feedback
  • Testimonials and letters of support.

What kind of URLs should I submit?

Any other supporting materials that cannot be uploaded should be added as a website link at the end of your application. Supporting URLs may include:

  • Websites
  • Social media profiles
  • Videos
  • Online articles, interviews, reviews.
