Nomination Info


To ensure fairness and consistency, all of the judging is done in the AMCP judging room in Arlington, Texas. Each nomination is judged against itself and not directly against other nominations. There could be no winners in a category or multiple winners. Nominations are judged at random. They are not grouped by categories.

Each nomination is reviewed and then discussed by the judges. Judges are well-rounded professionals with extensive experience with business and nonprofits. Given the size of the nominee and the scope of involvement, judges form an expectation for performance excellence. For instance, more effort would be expected from a Fortune 500 company or national law firm than from a small company or one-person firm.

Judges will consider effort, potential resources, performance and impact in their decisions. Nominations judged as excellent will be recognized as Communitas winners.


The Communitas Awards is open to any company, organization, individual or anyone nominating on their behalf (such as an ad agency or PR firm). Only the nominated company, organization or individual will be recognized in Communitas' lists of winners. The community service or corporate social responsibility activity must have been concluded or started in the past 12 months.
