The nominations deadline is on Friday, January 29, 2021. The Project of the Year awards will be presented in June, followed by an online vote by ​NWCB members for the People's Choice Award recipient selected from the winners from the various categories.

This year, we have a convenient online nomination form, which allows you to fill in the project information and to upload supporting documentation such as a project description, photos and video -- all in one place! Before you can start a nomination, you will be asked to create an account and to confirm your email address, but don't worry, it is an easy process and will only take seconds.

Make sure to have your information ready when you begin the submission. If you need others to upload components (for example, photos or video), you can invite them as collaborators to the nomination form.
