  1. Nominate in Multiple Awards: Nominating in Multiple award programs offers a great winning chance since each award program has its own competition level (low, high & medium). Since the award participation & winning is a time-consuming process, You do not need to wait for another year incase if you do not win in any of the awards. 

  2. Nominate in Multiple Award Categories : We strongly recommend to nominate in minimum of 2 award categories which will increase the winning chances upto 40% more compared to nominating in a single category.
