To nominate a candidate, you need to fill in the form on the awards page, which also provides a full list of nominations, rounds, and other details. Applications are open until November 6.
All nominees will be entered into the online voting process, and from there, a shortlist will be drawn up, with the winners determined by an honorary jury. The names of the winners will be announced at the ceremony on December 7.
