Nomination Rules

Rules for the 2017 GSA


Please read these carefully.

No company may be nominated for more than one award on substantially the same basis. GSA will discard entries for multiple awards which broadly replicate other entries.

We reserve the right to move an entry to a different category from the category entered if the entry is better suited to that category.

  • In the event that there are too few qualified nominations in a particular category, GSA reserves the right to not select a winner in that category.
  • In the event that there are no qualified nominations in a particular category, The GSA Awarding Board reserves the right shortlist or nominate and further select a winner in that category.
  • The finalists for all individual awards must accept their award in person if they are selected the winner.
  • All nominations must be submitted using the Online Nominating Process. Nominations and supporting materials must be received not later than May, 2017. Extensions to this date will be granted if the need be
  • Nominations may be submitted either directly from a company, from an involved individual, or from a third party. In the event that a third party nominates a company or individual, GSA will contact the nominated company or individual and ask the nominee to review the nomination for accuracy and, if necessary, provide any missing documentation. If the company or individual fails to provide the required response by the specified date, the nomination will be excluded from competition.
  • Each nomination should include the nominated company’s logo. For screen quality, we require images of 300 dpi or above, Illustrator or Photoshop. These files can be emailed to info@ghanashippersawards.com.
