For the NRB Annual Media Awards, all members are invited to submit the individuals and organizations that they believe best meet the awards criteria. Self-submissions are encouraged from qualified members and will not be viewed negatively as a form of self-promotion, but rather as members seeking a form of recognition for their teams that will provide motivation to continually strive for excellence.
The submission window for the 2016 Annual Media Awards is now closed, so please return to this page in July 2016 for instructions on how to submit for the 2017 Media Awards.
