Thank you for your interest in the Abie Awards! Here are some frequently used Abie Award terms.
|Nominee||The nominee is the individual who is being considered for an Abie Award.|
|Nominator||The nominator is the individual who is completing and submitting the submission form on behalf of the Nominee. Nominators should be able to provide a well-rounded view of the impact of the nominee’s work and impact on the community. The Nominator may also be the Nominee for an Abie Award. The Student of Vision Abie Award is the only award that requires the Nominee to self-nominate (no additional nominator).|
|Abie Award Winner||The individual who the selection committee has identified as the Abie Award recipient after reviewing submissions. Each year, we select a total of five Abie Award Winners.|
|Recommender||A recommender is an individual who writes a letter of recommendation on behalf of the Nominee. Each submission requires two letters of recommendation. Note that the nominator cannot be a recommender. You must have two separate recommenders from the nominator.|
|Submission Form||The submission form is the online form that the nominator uses to share information about the Abie Award nominee with the selection committee. Each Abie Award has its own submission form.|
