To ensure that our nomination fees are reasonable and affordable by anyone who believes they know someone worthy of being nominated, the American Awards provides for the sponsorship of individual award categories, as well as general sponsorship of the awards.
If you, your organization or company would like to be the Official Sponsor of one of our award categories, please place a sponsorship bid using the form below. Sponsorship of Award Categories is secured on a month-by-month basis.
What does it cost to become the Official Sponsor of an Awards category?
Sponsorship of award categories is established via a blind bidding process. Regardless of whether you’re a Mom & Pop shop, or an international conglomerate, your company can sponsor an awards category for a given month if you place the highest bid in a category by 6:00pm on the 20th day of the month immediately prior to the month of sponsorship.
What does sponsorship of a category include?
Your company’s logo will be displayed next to the category name on all nominations in the category you’ve sponsored, as well as listed next to the categories on the “Categories” page. Any users who click on your company’s logo will be redirected to a URL of your choosing on your company’s website. Currently, sponsorship of categories is only available on a monthly basis. Information about being an official sponsor of the Annual Awards will be announced in mid-to-late 2015.
Who can sponsor a category?
Any individual, company, or organization can sponsor an awards category. However, final acceptance of all bids rests with the Chairman of the American Awards, who may reject any bid for sponsorship (including winning bids) for any reason. Should any winning bid be rejected, a full refund of any monies paid in connection with the rejected sponsorship will be provided by Perfect Republic within 14 business days.
Are there any rules regarding sponsorship?
Yes, sponsors may not use lewd images or language in their logos, may not direct users to any websites that would be inappropriate for children, may not encourage or endorse hatred or the use of violence, or otherwise attempt to exploit their sponsorship of an awards category in a way which would hurt, offend, or otherwise harm potential users of the American Awards website. This policy shall be enforced in the reasonable discretion of the Chairman of the American Awards.
How will I know if my bid won?
If you’ve placed the highest bid on sponsoring a category for a given month, we’ll contact you via e-mail within 5 business days to confirm your winning bid and provide instructions regarding payment.
