Project Voice 2021 Awards
Nominations have now opened for The Project Voice Awards, which honor global best-in-class achievement across voice technology and conversational AI taking place across calendar year 2020.
Here’s how to make nominations, which remain open through January 31:
if registered for Project Voice 2021 (in-person conference in April) or Project Voice Worldwide (virtual conference in April), you can email any and all nominations (along with as much supporting information as you’d like to provide) to , which will get it to where it needs to go.
if your company has purchased a Company Pass, which enables your company to send an unlimited number of full-time employees and staff to Project Voice 2021 (and attend Project Voice Worldwide virtually), you can also email your nominations to along with supporting information.
if you are not registered for either one, you can still make nominations for any of these awards. They carry a $49 fee and you can use this form to make your nomination and attach supporting information as a PDF.
Finalists will be announced February 1, and a panel of three industry and academic judges will decide each Winner.
Winners will be announced throughout April 12-16 (during both Project Voice 2021 in person as well as Project Voice Worldwide virtually).
Q. What information should I include for me or my company to support a nomination?
A. Give us, as concisely as possible, why the judges should consider the person, company, voice experience, tool, etc for the award in question.
We leave the awards relatively open-ended - if you think your nomination fits the bill, explain why.
Q. What is the period of eligibility?
A. Generally, these 2021 awards will consider nominations representing accomplishment and achievement realized over calendar year 2020.
We realize, particularly for some award categories, this will need to be more closely evaluated for some nominees than others.
