  • It is possible to submit the same plan for consideration in multiple categories. If you are submitting for multiple plans, submit a separate application for each plan. See the application for details.

  • While we have not incorporated specific changes to our award categories or required submission questions for our 2021 GEO Awards as the result of the current environment, we are cognizant that the special circumstances present during 2020 have the potential to dramatically impact a company‚Äôs global share plans. If you have made significant changes to your plans that you would like the Judges to consider as part of your awards submission, please highlight or explain how the submitted plan has been affected or adjusted in relation to the impact of the various 2020 global events (COVID-19, Natural Disasters, Economic Challenges, Brexit, Furloughs, Work From Home, Diversity & Inclusion, Equal Pay, etc.) within your responses. We have increased the maximum allowable characters of various questions to permit additional explanation of these factors.

  • Supporting documentation can include samples of communication or financial educational materials, plan presentations, public financial filings, etc., and can be provided online by uploading the documentation via the online application or by providing printed documentation to the address below or both. Electronic documentation is strongly preferred.

All applicants will be asked to explain and demonstrate their efforts and progress in the designated category.
