Who can enter?

Investor relations officers and in-house investor relations teams at any publicly listed company domiciled in India can be entered. Entries can be submitted directly by an individual or company nominating themselves, or by a vendor/service provider on behalf of a nominee.

There are no restrictions on the number of categories a company or individual can be entered into. Multiple entries may also be submitted into the same category, but make clear who is being nominated.

How will my entry be judged?

The judging panel is made up of investment professionals and IR Magazine editorial team members. Keep checking our website for updates. The judging process is made up of two simple phases:

Phase 1: Judges are sent all submissions for review. They are asked to score the entries for each category based on the criteria. The judges scores will then be collated and averaged, which will form the initial short lists.

Phase 2: For the second phase, judges come together to discuss, with renewed scrutiny, those entries that have made it through to the shortlist. This final stage will determine the winners in each category.

The judges scores will not be shared with nominees, however, comments may be published in articles or reports after the event. The judges are not required to make comments against every submission.

We will inform short listed companies and individuals from late April by telephone and email.
