To be eligible to apply for an award category in a particular area of research, your company must be a TSIA corporate member of that research practice. Membership must be current throughout the span of the STAR Awards program.
Entries are $2,900 each. Members may pay upon self-nomination by either credit card or TSIA will collect via our accounting processes (billing via invoice). Premium members may have available extension credits that can be applied toward their STAR Awards entry fees. Some companies elect to purchase vouchers in advance of emailing the intent to apply. These are usually purchased at the time of membership renewal.
Yes, a single company can win in more than one category in the same year.
STAR Awards are presented one time per year. Please check the STAR Awards page for the detailed timeline during application season.
Please read the criteria for each category and select the one that best matches your situation.
Yes, you will have more time to work on completing your application entry! Upon emailing us your intent to apply, you will receive the Application Form for each category that you have selected. The sooner you receive the Application Form(s), the more time you will have to complete your submission(s).
You may apply for multiple categories. There is a flat fee of $2,900 for each category entry. Your odds of winning a STAR Award increase with the more categories you pursue, so we recommend participating in any or all categories where you have accomplishments and a good story to tell.
Typically, we have 3 to 10 applications per category. In categories with a larger number of applicants, judges may elect to award two separate winners: one for the enterprise-sized companies and one for the mid-lower-sized revenue companies. 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 deadline has passed and all Application Forms are submitted, 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 Form 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.
Please submit all entries of completed Application Form(s) back to STARawards@tsia.com.
Supporting documents are not required, but there will be the opportunity to include links where helpful to support your application.
We require that your whole application form does not exceed 2 pages with font size no smaller than 10pt. More details about the application can be found in the application form and in the on-demand webinar.
Yes, please include your company logo and web address as prompted by the Application Form.
The application fee is typically non-refundable once your intent to apply has been acknowledged and the STAR Awards Application Form has been sent to you.
