With the world changing at such a rapid pace we felt that it was time to update the traditional way we recognise outstanding businesses. So we ripped up the rule book, and started from scratch.
We wanted to focus on recognising great businesses, regardless of sector, size, budget or country.
So their are no entry requirements, no categories and every award is unique to the winner. Meaning we are truly able to recognise all the fantastic companies out there.
Our judging criteria is what will inspire others.
We announce the winners before the ceremony. We took this approach so our ceremony in fact becomes a celebration.
You can even pick your own walking up music when you collect your prize.
The idea of the Lotus Awards was to not focus on competition but focus on recognition, to excite others with our inspirational and diverse group of winners.
Our ethos stems from our parent company Engage International.
Recognise, Inspire, Improve.
