We are pleased to provide the 2020 MAC Awards submission requirements. Several changes have been implemented over the last several years, please review the requirements carefully before submitting your nominations. If you have any questions, please contact Lynzi Michal at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416.385.1100 extension 22.
2020 Eligibility & Entry Requirements
We no longer accept PDF submissions. All submissions must be completed directly through the online portal in the provided form fields specific to each award category. More information is provided below about this process. In addition, each organization will be limited to a maximum of two submissions per category. In light of the COVID-19 health crisis, we have reduced the number of award categories for 2020. The MAC Awards are currently scheduled for December 3rd and will be provided in a virtual format should an in-person event not be permitted. More information will be provided to members as this situation evolves.
The online submission portal will open no later than September 15th and members will be notified by email. All submissions must be received by Thursday, October 1st at 12pm noon. Late submissions will not be accepted. The FRPO MAC Awards are open to organizations of all sizes. The judging panels will narrow the field to three finalists with the winner being announced at the Awards Gala being held on December 3rd. Finalists will be notified ahead of time. All nominations must be FRPO members in good standing. Any nominated buildings must be managed or owned by your organization at the time of submission. FRPO reserves the right to cancel any categories with an insufficient number of entries.
In order to streamline the length of submissions, each required answer has a maximum word count, please refer to individual questions for limits. You are not required to use the maximum word count. If your answer exceeds the maximum word count, you will not be able to upload your submission. We suggest creating your submissions in a document that you can easily copy and paste your answers into the provided form fields. All application questions should be answered clearly, concisely and with enough detail to adequately define your nomination. Extremely long or extremely short submissions are always more difficult to judge.
Hyperlinks are not permitted unless otherwise noted (eg. website address). Judges will disregard any hyperlinks that are included in any other fields. You will be able to upload your supplemental photo files in the order you wish the judges to view them. It is very important that each photo is clearly labeled for the judges. In addition, you must include high resolution versions of your company logo with each award category that you apply for.
High-quality, well shot photographs are encouraged. Poor quality photos may hinder your submission. You may even consider adding text to your photos to assist the judging panel in assessing your application. The photos and logos that you submit must be high resolution to display on screen at the Awards Gala. Please refer to file limits noted on the submission portal page. Submitted photos may be used in the Awards Presentation or in other marketing pieces specifically related to the MAC Awards.
Finally, please keep in mind that the company name that you list on your application, is what will be displayed at the Gala should you be a finalist or winner.
Good luck to all nominees.
PLEASE REVIEW THE FILE SIZE RESTRICTIONS
If your files are too large, your submission will not upload
The maximum number of files that you may upload is 100. You may upload multiple files at once. If you miss a file, please use the ‘choose file’ option to upload additional files. No file may be more than 128MBs. You may have to compress your files so that they comply with the maximum. If one or more of your files is over 128MBs, your nomination will not be uploaded and you will receive an error message. Please ensure you have submitted ALL required supplemental files and photos to support your entry. These will be used for the AV presentation at the awards gala should you be a finalist. Thank you.
