How to update your Online Award Page

  • You will receive an email with your username and password to log in to your entry portal:
  • Once you are logged in to the award platform, scroll to the bottom of the page to locate your entry
  • Click the title of the Innovation Award Entry to update
  • Uploading images and files are not required. Once you complete all of the required fields, you can preview, submit, or save your entry and come back to it another time. Please note: Entry Name is how your company will appear to the judges.
  • We recommend submitting your entry as soon as possible in order for it to be in the gallery once crowd voting begins on May 21, 2021. Once you submit, you will still be able to edit and update your awards page through August 6, 2021 (when committee voting begins).
  • All award entry pages are private until May 21, 2021. You will not be able to invite your community to vote until May 21, 2021.
