THIS APPLIES TO NOMINEES ONLY: Congratulations on being a nominee for the 57th Annual Awards!

We believe that every nominee has earned the right to accept their award “in person” so we have created an environment where all nominees attending the event will receive a login to speak to the audience if they win.

How this works:

In order to facilitate the easiest experience for all attending nominees we will supply a simple zoom link that you will need to access through a secondary device.

Once in the event you will see the following screen:

Within moments our event concierge will greet you, confirm your name and award title. Then your feed will be switched to the waiting room for your category. You will not see or hear the other nominees as you will be watching the show!

PLEASE NOTE: The nominee room will be playing the show in real time.  The Event window (for attendees) will contain a slight delay.

When the presentation gets to your category on your secondary, nominee zoom link device, be prepared as if you were in the ballroom! When you hear the winning title, if you are a winner, you and your fellow team members will be collected and brought into a “combined winners view”.

Once you see yourselves on screen you can start talking and give your acceptance speeches.

If you are not a winner, you will be removed from the feed.  You can turn off your secondary device and return to the original attendee window on your primary device and continue to enjoy the show.

PLEASE NOTE: ALL ATTENDING NOMINEES will need to have a tech check to ensure device compatibility and connection for the night.

Whilst most nominees have now check in those who do not TECH CHECK will not be able to make their live acceptance speech.

If you have not tech checked please contact IMMEDIATELY.

ADDITIONAL INFO: If you have been recognized for your work in more than one category you will be switched into the next nominee feed as required.
