What are you looking for in each category?

Read our blog post that details what were looking for in each category. If you still have questions after reading that blog post, feel free to email [email protected].

Can I nominate something for multiple categories?

Yes. When you are submitting your nomination form you are allowed to check more than one of the category boxes.

Can I nominate multiple things in one submission?

No, please nominate different events separately. However, you can nominate one event for multiple categories on the submission form.

Who/what can we nominate?

You can nominate anything that falls into one of our 17 categories. Keep in mind that the link in your nomination should direct us to a specific blog post or online gallery that is easy to view. You can also submit social URLs. If you need to send photos for your nomination, you can send them to [email protected] via Dropbox. However, we prefer that you submit links rather than sending photos separately.

If we dont have a URL, how can we send in nominations?

If the piece of work you wish to nominate is not published on a blog/online gallery already, you can include a Dropbox link or send your files via Dropbox to [email protected]

Who can nominate?

Brides, grooms, wedding professionals, friends, family, peers, etc. If you see something that you think fits one of our categories, by all means, nominate!

How do I nominate a category that involves more than one vendor (a wedding, for example)?

You can just nominate the one vendor, and then we'll be able to credit the other vendors if the work is chosen as a winner.

Do I need to be nominated by someone?

No, feel free to nominate your own work, but for good karma, you should also nominate a few peers, too! You should also send the Choice Awards nomination page to friends and family so that they can nominate your work.

I want to nominate but don't have any good photos of my work. What can I do?

Photographs will be an essential part of the judging process. Get in touch with the photographer who covered the wedding you were involved with and see if you can make arrangements to use some of their photographs. Photographs submitted should be sharp, well exposed, and clearly show your work.
