At BACO 2020 we will celebrate the achievements of colleagues with a series of prestigious awards. Nominations can be made via a dedicated portal, and awards will be presented at BACO 2020. This is a great opportunity to reward excellence in otolaryngology, and to celebrate our peers. Please note that only ENT UK members can nominate or be nominated. Awards will be given in the following categories:
- Rising star
- Outstanding trainer
- Global Health
- Innovation in otolaryngology
- ENT allied professionals.
For more information about eligibility, visit the award categories web page.
Winners will be determined by an online vote, open to all ENT UK members, using a dedicated online voting platform provided by Mi-Voice, a company specialising in online balloting. Nominations must be submitted via Mi-Voice’s web page, which will be open between 24 October 2019 and 2 March 2020. Partially completed nominations may be saved, and completed before the deadline. You will be asked to submit up to 250 words in support of your nominee, and provide details including their name and hospital. In addition to nominating a colleague, you will be able to recommend that colleagues nominate themselves by sending your colleague an automatic email informing him or her of your suggestion.
Winners will be determined by the ENT UK membership via a ballot open to all ENT UK members. Prior to this, nominations will undergo a vetting process, carried out by ENT UK/BACO, to ensure each is eligible in the category to which it has been entered. ENT UK members will then be sent individual URL links, through which they will be able to vote once in each of the five awards categories.
Nominations will be open between 24 October 2019 and 2 March 2020. Voting will be open between 23 March 2020 and 20 April 2020.
