REGGIE Nominees

Here are some ground rules for nominating:

  • You must nominate a company or individual in at least seven of the 10 categories. Nomination forms that have less than 7 categories filled in will be tossed out and not counted.
  • To encourage a wider range of participation from around the industry, we are limiting nominations to a maximum of two categories per company or individual. In the case a company or individual receives nominations in more than two categories, the top two vote counts per category will be used.
  • Nominations close on November 10th at 5 PM Central Time. This is a hard date, so no emails afterwards asking us to make an exception.
  • Nominee announcements will be November 11th
  • Voting will take place beginning December 8th at 5 PM Central Time
  • Winners will be announced on our show December 9th


137 Nominations Forms Completed – 33 Kicked out for not following instructions. Not bad, 75% of the industry took time to read.
