I'm shortlisted - what happens next?
We've emailed all shortlisted entrants with next steps including invites to the NYC ceremony, taking place the evening of Tuesday, 4th December. If you're shortlisted but haven't heard from us by 11.59 (PST) Fri 12 Oct, it's probably because we don't have up-to-date contacts for you – so drop us a line.
Not shortlisted but want to find out the results live - and brush shoulders with the winners - at the NYC ceremony? We’re making available a limited number of tickets (including canapés and a welcoming drink) - book here.
