For the 8th Annual Next Generation Market Research Awards, the NGMR Award Committee has decided to shake things up and change the categories a bit.
Announcing New Categories for 2016 NGMR Award Nominations
Since the founding of the NGMR Award in 2009, it has quickly become one of the most prestigious testaments to achievements in our industry. Some have even referred to it as the Nobel Prize of market research!
This years three new disruptive change categories include:
Outstanding Disruptive Start-Up
We’re looking for an outstanding start-up (3 years or less in the industry) that is disrupting traditional market research methods. Whether it’s a technology platform or a service based solution, nominate a firm that’s truly shaking up market research.
Most Innovative Research Method
What are the most innovative research methods you’ve come across in the past year? We’re looking for firms with tested new methods that have delivered exceptional, validated research results.
Industry Change Agent of the Year
Who is blowing your mind? Shaking things up? Doing things differently? This award will go to a truly exceptional change agent. Someone that not only talks the talk but walks the walk.
Winners will receive a complimentary pass to TMRE and the opportunity to discuss their Next Gen Research best practices during the NGMR Award session moderated by Kristin Luck and Tom H. C. Anderson.
Nominations should be sent to NGMRawards [@] NextGenMR.com by no later than August 31, 2016 and must include two to three paragraphs (no more than one page) of supporting information as well as a brief nominee bio and/or company background. Additionally, if necessary, you may also attach separately up to two supporting charts/images or videos (on no more than one page).
Please note the category you are submitting for and provide the additional information below.
Nominee Name ______________________________
Nominee Title _______________________________
Please provide a brief argument for why one or more of the three award categories are appropriate.
The Judging committee will reach out should we have any further questions about a nomination. Only the award winners will be notified shortly before the event. Winners are expected to be able to attend the event and participate in the award ceremony.
