Now how do I take part?


Just go here and start the process of nominating yourself! There are also great materials to help you throughout the entire process. Best thing to do is start with the 2022 official rules and once you know which category you'd like to take part in, the award guidelines give you more detailed information.

I heard there are also Swiss Partner of the Year Awards. How does that work?


As in previous years there will also be a local version of the Partner of the Year Awards.


This year, same as we did in 2021, if you nominate yourself for the Global Awards you will be automatically registered in the Swiss Awards also. To make it simpler for you, we will be using the same nomination tool for both: local and global awards. Thus, you just need to do one entry (either you want to nominate yourself for the global and/or Swiss local awards) when the nomination period will be open!


We are looking forward to your submissions and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out here or to me directly!


Stay connected to stay up-to-date with the latest information!
