As in previous years, these awards will be entered, shortlisted and then the shortlisted companies will have to present their case to a panel of judges face-to-face.
Reseller Awards will recognise excellence in the delivery of solutions, service and support to end user customers, taking into consideration the reseller's ability to deliver real benefits to the user organisation, and to meet customer objectives in terms of improved efficiency, ROI and investment protection, and cost reduction. Companies that demonstrate innovation in developing and bringing-to-market new concepts and solutions will also be candidates for these awards.

TThis category is open to all resellers that feel they have done a particularly outstanding job over the past 12 months that deserves the top accolade at the CRN awards. Any reseller, regardless of size, specialisation or focus is eligible to enter this award
Your entry will be marked against, and therefore must stick to the following criteria. ENTRIES NOT ADDRESSING THESE POINTS MAY BE MARKED DOWN. Please answer each point separately.

2. What has your business achieved in the past 12 months that makes it stand out from the competition - this can be either significant revenue growth (both organic and through acquisition), a large number of vendor accreditations in one year, significant amount of major contract wins or just punching above your weight in a challenging economic climate.
3. What has been your company's biggest achievement over the past year?
4. Pick a particularly successful case study from the past year and explain to the judges why it was such a success, and why you think it will help you win this award. A customer testimonial can be used to back up the case study.
Entries are actively encouraged to include hard facts and figures - all of which will be kept strictly confidential and used for judging purposes only. All programmes and initiatives must have been new or further developed in 2013 to qualify.
