Nominations for Incentive's annual Motivation Masters Awards are officially open. Celebrating the most effective incentive programs in the categories of sales, dealer channel, recognition and loyalty -- as well as an overall Grand Motivation Master winner -- the awards recognize exemplars of outstanding incentive programs from the previous year. 

Apply here. Deadline for submissions is Dec. 15, 2019.

Programs of any size and budget that utilized merchandise, travel, and/or gift cards as rewards are eligible.

A special focus will be given to how the program objectives were developed and how much the results met or exceeded them. A team of judges choose winners (both the incentive supplier and client whose program they planned) in the four categories as well as a Grand Motivation Master. Winners will be covered in Incentive's print, online and newsletter channels and invited to take part in a live award ceremony at Northstar's Incentive Live event, which will take place April 19 to 20 at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort in Tucson, Ariz..

"Incentive's Motivation Masters Awards is our chance to spotlight some of the most outstanding programs in the industry - the most creative, effective and impactful reward and recognition campaigns out there," said David R. Blansfield, executive vice president and group publisher of Northstar Meetings Group. "It is a chance to both celebrate those who are doing great things in the business of motivation and to learn for ourselves how they're generating such impressive results."

Winners last year included a Super Bowl-themed sales program, a loyalty program powered by AI and a gamified employee recognition program. Read about last year's winners here and apply here today.
