To be considered for an award, a business must either be nominated or submit their own award entry. If you have already been nominated for an award, we strongly encourage you to also complete your own award entry form. The more detail that’s provided about a business or organization, the more helpful it will be for the judges to decide on finalists and recipients for the Alberta Business Awards of Distinction.

Submission Deadline

To be considered for the 2022 Alberta Business Awards of Distinction, entries must be received no later than February 22, 2022.
