Award recipients will be presented with an iconic trophy and certificate at the Awards presentation ceremony. They also earn the prestige of being honoured among their peers as the shining beacons of excellence who are the very “best of the best” in their field. This in turn will gain them greater exposure and credibility in their market.

Multiple entries may be submitted. However, repeat or multiple nominations for the same individual or establishment will be considered as only one nomination.

An email confirmation will be sent to you each time you submit a new entry.
