To be eligible to apply for an award category in a particular TSIA research practice, your company must be an active TSIA corporate member in that research community.
Entries are $2,900 each. Members may pay by credit card, or TSIA will collect via our accounting processes (billing via invoice). Premium and Premium Plus members may apply Premium Credits to enter.
Yes, a single company can win in more than one category in the same year.
STAR Awards are presented one time per year and celebrated all year round. Applications typically open by May, and the finalists and winners are announced by October. Please refer to the STAR Awards Main Page in April for the updated dates of each year.
Please read the submission criteria for each category and select the one(s) that best match(es) your situation.
Yes, you will have more time to work on completing your application entry! Upon emailing us your intent to apply and completing your registration, you will receive the application instructions. The sooner you receive the application instructions, the more time you will have to deliberate on and complete your submission(s).
You may apply for multiple categories. There is a flat fee of $2,900 or 2 (two) Premium Credits for each category entry. Your chances to win a STAR Award increase with each additional entry, so we recommend participating in any or all categories where you have accomplishments and a good story to tell.
Typically, we have 5 to 10 applications per category. In categories with a larger number of applicants, judges may elect to award separate winners for enterprise and SMB/Mid-Market entrants. Finalists for each level may also be named. This will be determined on a case-by-case basis and is entirely determined by each judging pool per category.
Once the application submission deadline has passed and all applications are received, the TSIA Research team will review the applications, and the Advisory Board for the corresponding research practice will vote on the applications.
The judges for the STAR Awards are a panel of your peers. TSIA Advisory Board members from each research practice serve as STAR Awards judges.
A company can enter the TSIA STAR Awards Hall of Fame by winning five individual STAR Awards in different years. The awards do not have to be received in successive years and do not have to be from the same category. A company can become a two-time STAR Awards Hall of Fame winner by winning a 10th STAR Award, a three-time STAR Awards Hall of Fame winner by winning a 15th STAR Award, and so on.
The application instructions will provide specific guidance on the information needed. Additionally, we have an on-demand webinar that shares more details. We encourage you to include descriptions about the innovation that led to significant improvement and/or differentiated performance in specific business outcomes. Focusing on the key and unique features of your innovation as well as insights learned during development and rollout will also help distinguish winning applications. Finally, you can check out past winners and finalists here.
We publish the winners’ and finalists’ applications as STAR case studies on our website. You can access those examples on the STAR Awards Winners & Finalists page.
Please submit all completed application(s) to STARawards@tsia.com and include your company's logo in vector format, the key contact for each application, and the best delivery address (for the purpose of sending the trophy).
Supporting documents are not required, but there will be the opportunity to include links where helpful to support your application. Please keep in mind that your completed application, including any supporting links and content, should not exceed 2 (two) pages.
We require that your whole application does not exceed 2 (two) pages with font size of 10pt or larger. More details about the application can be found in the application instructions and in the on-demand webinar.
Yes, please include your company logo and web address as prompted in the instructions. When you submit your application, please also include within the email your company’s official logo in vector format, so that in the event of becoming a finalist or beyond, your company will be properly displayed on our STAR Awards Winners & Finalist page.
The application fee is typically non-refundable once your intent to apply has been officially registered and the STAR Awards application instructions have been sent to you.
