Can I nominate after the closing date?
No. We can't accept any entries for RNIB See Differently Awards 2024 received after midnight on the advertised closing date.
How are nominations shortlisted?
Nominations are first shortlisted by an internal RNIB team to achieve a list of three National Finalists for each category. This list is then judged by an independent panel to select the overall winners in each category.
All nominations will be shortlisted based on what nominees have done or achieved in line with the category criteria. You may only nominate an individual once, but you may nominate as many different people as you like across the award categories.
When will we be in touch?
Once a nomination has been submitted you should receive a thank you message to confirm we’re received your nomination.
We may get in contact with the nominee via email or by phone to clarify details of their nomination. This is to help us with the shortlisting process. Therefore, it is important to let your nominee know they have been put forward for an award!
We will use the additional details and updated nomination to support the entry and to illustrate the nominee’s achievements if they are shortlisted as a Finalist. It will also be the basis of any press releases that we send to local media.
Any shortlisted nominees we contact will be given clear information about what data we have been given by the nominator including why and how it will be used going forward. All shortlisted nominees will be required to sign an RNIB media consent form to continue with the RNIB See Differently Awards process.
