Written Statement

A brief written statement (500 words maximum) is required for describing why this person, company, brand or product deserves to be considered as a nominee in the category. This statement will be published and viewed by voters to help educate them on the rep, company, product or brand. Your statement will be published as entered; WSIA is not responsible for errors.

Please follow these specs to ensure images and logos submitted with your entries are displayed properly in the online voting system. Note that if the images or logos you submit do not meet these specs or are not labeled in this pattern, they might not appear in the same size as the images submitted by competing entries or in the order in which you preferred they appear.

  • Provide a JPEG of your logo at least 500 pixels wide x 500 pixels high with a maximum size of 1500 x 1500 pixels.
