How does the Annual Awards process work? 

If you’re submitting an entry, make sure it’s as detailed as can be as the awards will be judged by people who may not be familiar with the volleyball community. 

After the nomination deadline, an independent judging panel will sift through all of the entries to form a 3-person shortlist for each category. 

The winners will then be announced at an in-person awards ceremony at the end of July. Full details of the ceremony are yet to be confirmed.
