MEDIA KIT FOR FINALISTS
The OnCon Icon Awards are peer voted awards. The voting period for the 2024 Top 100 individual awards is January 15th - February 15th.
Award winners will be selected by peer votes based on observations of impact, thought leadership, innovation, and leadership.
It's suggested to share your finalist designation with your network to encourage voting once voting opens on January 15th. This is recommended, but not required. There will also be promotion by OnConferences, and indirect promotion by other finalist shares.
Based on the number of votes we will announce the Top 100, 50, 10, and 1 in each of the categories at the OnCon Icon Awards virtually on April 23, 2024 at 8pm - 9:30pm ET.
In any shares, you may also highlight any successful projects, or accomplishments to further encourage voting.
You can see previous winners here.
