IdeaScale announced the 2013 Open Innovation Awards in August and after several months, applications, questions, truly strange stories and stranger requests, the period for sharing is almost over. The Innovation Awards submission period ends this Friday at midnight and any applications received after that will not be reviewed.
The journey doesn’t end there. In fact, for IdeaScale the work has only just begun. We’re going to compare some truly compelling, but remarkably unique stories to find out who the leaders are in engagement, moderation, change, savings, and efficiency. A reminder of what the calendar looks like in the coming month.
8 November: The Awards Submission Period Closes (and a truly cumbersome week of review awaits us as we review tons of applications).
15 November: The finalists are notified and begin the tedious process of waiting until the awards ceremony to know who the final winners are.
13 December: The winners are notified at the awards ceremony and arrangements are made for the winners to receive their spoils.
The point is: don’t miss your chance. Applications are due by Friday and entrants can potentially win a discounted 2014 IdeaScale license, the ability to fast track an IdeaScale 2014 feature, and the chance to win a trip to Hawaii. So tell your story with lots of detail and a few measurable results and we look forward to seeing you at the awards ceremony in December.
Any other last minute advice? We look forward to reading your submissions.
