Why enter in the CiteAb Awards?

This year is particularly special. 

Instead of traditional awards like those we have presented in previous years, we are gifting winning companies 10 square metres of land with Co-Forest. This land will be planted with trees, and the plot containing your very own tiny future forest can be named after your company. 

Co-forest is creating a diverse woodland with their first project, Acorn, in the Bristol/Bath area. Companies and individuals are able to pledge and plant in this project, which is planned to be the first of many Co-Forest carbon-offsetting initiatives. 

We hope to make a small difference by switching from trophies to awarding little pieces of woodland that can have a lasting impact.

On top of this, you will receive a winners pack including marketing materials and a digital certificate. Winners’ stories will also be promoted across the CiteAb blog and social media. We hope to attend the AACR conference this year to congratulate our winners in person and award certificates.

How to enter

Entering is simple, free and easy. Follow this link to our awards website and fill out the short nomination form in your desired category. Nominations close in one week (the 21st February!).

The whole CiteAb team wishes you the very best of luck with all your nominations!
