The most important thing is that you provide all the needed information. It also helps if you contact the nominee to let them know you will or have nominated them and they are in agreement with being nominated.
Will more than one nominee from the same organization, civic group or community be accepted? Yes, all nominations are accepted and considered as long as all information is provided.
How does the selection process work? After the nominations are received, contact is made with the nominee to ensure they are willing to participate in the Top 50. Once approval has been secured, nominations are sent to the nomination committee who will review them and select the top nominations under each category. This is completed by the 2nd week in April. Recipients are then notified first by a phone call and then by written communication (email or snail mail).
What is required of those who are selected? Top 50 Over 50 Recipients must be available for a photo shoot that will be published along with their bio in BMetro, other local publications, and on social media. They will also need to be available for the awards ceremony in July.
I want to nominate someone, but they will not be 50 until after the event. Can I still nominate them? No. Nominations for anyone who does not meet the age requirements are discarded. We will verify the dates of birth for each finalist.
Can I contact you to see how my Nominee is doing in the nomination process? No, we don't give status reports. If we need more information we will contact you. Please be patient.
