Can an event company from anywhere in the world enter the Gala Awards?
Yes! We are honored to receive entries from Europe, North and South America, the Middle East, etc.
I am entering the category “Best Achievement in Logistics.” Do I need to include a budget?
YES! This year, all entries must include a budget. And be sure the use the Gala Budget Template so that you include all the line items the judges are looking for. The judges realize that not all entries will require each line in the template, but be sure to follow the template as closely as you can.
Should I make sure to keep my company’s name out of the descriptions in the entry?
YES! In years past, the Gala Awards did not require anonymous entries, but they have decided this is important to preserve the integrity of the competition.
The entry form asks for entries to be supplied in three-ring binders, but my part of the world uses four-ring binders. Is that all right?
Can I get my Gala entry returned to me?
No. All Gala entries become property of Special Events Magazine.
