Rules and Requirements

Please read Rules 1 through 4 carefully as changes have been made to this year's program.

  1. All nominations must be submitted using the online form. Nominations must be received no later than midnight (EDT), on August 27, 2021. Incomplete entries will not be considered. We encourage submissions to include hyperlinks directly within relevant criteria sections.
  2. Each company will be allowed to submit up to 4 free entries per company, [inclusive of business units and departments]. Subsidiary companies will be considered their own entity, therefore will also qualify for 4 free entries.
  3. All free entries MUST BE COMPLETED and SUBMITTED no later than the deadline date of Friday, August 27, 2021, at midnight (EDT).
  4. Any entries submitted after August 27, 2021, will incur a late fee of $500 per entry until the late fee deadline date of Thursday, September 9, 2021, by midnight EDT. No entries will be accepted after the September 9th deadline.
  5. Multiple entries are encouraged but not exceeding 4 total. No company may nominate for more than one award on the same basis. Entries in multiple categories that broadly replicate other entries will be discarded.
  6. We reserve the right to move an entry from the category entered to a different category if we determine the entry is better suited to that category.
  7. In the event that there are too few qualified nominations in a particular category, S&P Global Platts reserves the right to dismiss or consolidate the category with another and rename the award.
  8. We reserve the right to divide a single category into multiple categories when we receive an overabundance of high-quality entries.
  9. The judges reserve the right to name no winner for individual categories (Chief Executive of the Year, Rising Star – Individual, and Lifetime Achievement).
  10. We accept nominations directly from the nominee or from a third party. In the event that a third party nominates a company or individual, the third party must provide contact details of an employee of the nominated company so that S&P Global Platts may contact the nominee to verify their consent and provide more information if required. If no employee/contact details are provided, OR if the individual fails to provide the required response by the specified date, the nomination will be excluded from consideration. Any late fee charges incurred will not be refunded.
  11. Each nomination MUST be accompanied by a rationale, not to exceed 300 words, that summarizes the entry. We strongly encourage you to tailor each summary to the individual category for which you are nominating. All financial statistics MUST be in U.S. dollars. The Nominating rationale should be submitted electronically through the online form.
  12. A Company Profile should be electronically submitted through the online form, which may include total revenue and profit for the award period, size of the company, and/or recent organization changes. All financial statistics MUST be in U.S. dollars to be considered.
  13. Nominations MUST also include additional insight into the nominee's qualifications as it relates to the Judging Criteria. You will be asked to elaborate on your nomination by providing examples of outstanding accomplishments, the risks involved, significant obstacles that were overcome, and any other pertinent information for each of the judging criteria specified in the category descriptions. All financial statistics MUST be in U.S. dollars. The nomination must be electronically submitted online.
  14. Each nomination will require the nominated company's logo. For screen quality, we require images of 300 dpi or above, Illustrator or Photoshop RGB EPS files. These files should be uploaded to the nomination entry. They can also be emailed to globalenergyawards@spglobal.com and must be received no later than midnight (EDT) on Friday, August 27th at the final close of nominations. If the logo is not received by the deadline, we reserve the right to find a suitable image via the public domain. Please indicate your company name and nomination category title in the subject line.
  15. Entries for Chief Executive of the Year, Rising Star Individual, and Lifetime Achievement will require a high-resolution color photograph of the individual nominated. These files can be emailed to globalenergyawards@spglobal.com and must be received no later than Friday, August 27th at midnight (EDT). If a photo is not received by the deadline date, Platts reserves the right to substitute a suitable image via the public domain. Please indicate your company name and nomination category in the subject line.
  16. Supporting material, not outlined above, is not required. Should you choose to send additional materials, please ensure they are supportive of the actual nomination. Supporting materials may include web links, videos, photographs, and other documents. These materials should be uploaded as links or files to the relevant nomination form directly. We also accept the emailing of support materials to globalenergyawards@spglobal.com. Please indicate your company name and nomination category in the subject line.
  17. Winners will NOT be notified prior to the Global Energy Awards event on December 9, 2021.
  18. All information submitted through the Online Nominating Process and all supporting materials will be considered strictly confidential and will only be used by S&P Global Platts and its panel of judges.
  19. Platts reserves the right to rescind any award, if misconduct is proven, or something similar.
