Why there is an entry fee for participating in ICMG Awards?

Each project nomination needs significant hours of efforts. The fees will go towards the cost of managing such multi-country, multi-time zone environment needs for more resources and operational support. We believe this is just a nominal fee that would reflect a firm commitment from the participating organizations.

What's Entry fee structure?

  • Government Agencies, Departments = Zero fee
  • Small & Medium Enterprises, Revenue < $500 mn = US$295
  • Large Enterprises, Revenue >US$ 500 mn = US$495
