What we're looking for
Enter as many award categories as you wish, using a different customer solution story for each submission. Each submission should comprise a 60-second video uploaded to YouTube and an executive summary (4,000 characters max). Before submitting your entry, you must identify the customer and confirm that they are willing to participate in your case study.

Video Submission guidelines
Keep it short and simple. We're not looking for flashy production values, just content. Describe the customer challenge, your technology solution, and why you believe it is 'excellent' - innovation, efficiency, ROI, sustainability, etc.

Transformation & Differentiation
