Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What does it cost to enter the Document Manager Awards?
A. There is no charge to enter the Awards.

Q. How many companies/products can I nominate?
A. You can nominate as many companies/products as you wish.

Q. What are the different types of categories?
A. We have two types of categories, our Project categories that require a written submission and are decided by our judging panel, and our company/product categories, where the winner is decided by an online public vote. In addition the Editor's Choice award is decided solely by the magazine editor.

Q. Can I nominate a company/product in more than one category?
A. Yes, as long as it's relevant you can nominate a company or product in as many categories as you wish.

Q. Can I nominate two products from the same company in one category?
A. No. You can only enter one product from the same company in a category. You can nominate different products in the same category as long as they are from different companies.

Q. How are the finalists decided?
A. In the public voting categories the companies with the most nominations in each category will go through to the finals. In the Project categories the panel will select the finalists from the entries submitted.

Q. How many companies can I vote for?
A. You can vote for one company in each category. You can only vote once, multiple votes will be recorded so we can identify any abuses but they will not be counted. Votes must come from a valid business email, not a free email such as hotmail, gmail etc. This is to stop multiple voting. If multiple voting abuses occur we reserve the right to disqualify any company(s) that may have benefited from those votes.

Q. Can we offer an incentive for people to vote for us?
A. No. Incentivised voting of any form, either directly in the form of a straight reward for voting, or indirectly in the form of "a chance to win" or "free entry into a competition to win" is not allowed. Any company identified of offering incentives may be disqualified.

Q. Can I have the details of the people that voted for me?
A. No. We never reveal any details of any of the people that vote or nominate in the awards. This is to protect their data and ensure people can vote for who they really want to.

Q. Do you record my email and IP Addresses?
A. These are just part of the measures we have in place to ensure voting is fair and to strip out multiple voting.

Q. Do you confirm my vote/nomination has been recorded?
A. Yes, as part of our verification each vote cast generates an automatic email reply detailing what products/companies were voted for. If that email fails/bounces back the vote is disregarded. If you do not receive a confirmation email from us, please call us.

Q. I want to enter a project category, what should I do?
A. Project entries should be sent in PDF format, be of no more than 1500 words and up to 3 images and be clearly marked with the Category you wish to enter, the name of all companies involved and a contact person the panel can refer to should they need more information/clarification. Entries should be sent to
