Awards Information

Please read this section carefully before submitting a nomination so that you are aware of the requirements.

The process consists of two stages

Stage 1

Deadline: 14 December 2018
  1. Study the following pages on the website carefully to familiarise yourself with all the requirements:
  2. Choose the category in which you will be nominating the candidate. You may decide to nominate the candidate in more than one category, in which case more than one motivation must be prepared. Refer to Terms and conditions.
  3. Notify the nominee of your intention to nominate and ensure that you receive their agreement to participate.
    • The nominee may have received an NSTF Award previously. Although some awards can be made to the same individual/team more than once, this only occurs if new work is presented for consideration.
    • The nominee may have already been approached by someone else and agreed to be nominated.
  4. Complete and submit the online Registration before the close of business on the day of the deadline.
    • The information will be captured in the NSTF database and provides the basis for all further processing and communications relating to the nomination.
  5. The NOMINEE will receive an e-mail notification confirming receipt of your submission. The NSTF Office will respond in due course with the full Nomination Form/s for each of the categories that the nominee was nominated for as an attachment. Please alert the NSTF Office should this not be received.  Also note that the NSTF Office close at end of business Friday, 14 December 2018.  If your registration is submitted after this time, the NSTF Office will only respond when it reopens on Wednesday, 9 January 2019.

Stage 2

Deadline: 1 March 2019
  1. Complete the full Nomination Form/s.
  2. The full Nomination Form provides the entire motivation for the adjudicators’ consideration. Supplementary information in the form of CDs, papers, books, etc will only be considered where called for – such as in the Communication Award category.
  3. In the event that you are nominating your candidate in more than one category, the second motivation should contain only the changes needed to the first and give only material which is different.
  4. Ensure that the completed full Nomination Form/s are e-mailed to the NSTF before the final deadline.
