1. How do we submit an entry?
All submissions must be submitted online via our submission tool. Should you experience problems with the submission tool, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org or call Julia directly: +41 44 248 46 72
2. Why should we submit an entry?
We believe that we can all learn from each other by sharing best practice. So many great projects and initiatives currently do not get the attention we believe they deserve – let’s change that!
3. Who can enter?
All Tamedia as well as the digital portfolio companies are invited to submit an application. All individuals of your teams can be nominated for the Tamedia Hero award.
4. Can my division or company submit in more than one award category?
Yes, your division or company can and is very welcome to submit in more than one award category. Please note that entries for the categories Marketing, Product and Technology should be coordinated within each division / portfolio company. We will only accept one application per category from each division / company. Nominations for the Tamedia Hero award do not have to be coordinated and can be made individually by everyone.
5. Why was there no application round for the category Apps?
There was no dedicated application round for this category since the required data were already available and all portfolio companies were automatically taken into consideration. OLMeRO won this years award for their project "Skitty" and received their golden cat at the TX Conference on 14 June 2017.
6. What is the deadline to submit an application?
The deadline to submit entries for the Golden Cat Award is 31 August 2018.
7. What makes a winning entry?
Of course, this answer varies per category. In general, our judging panel gives preference to submissions that are able to show measurable and strong results, that show outstanding commitment and/or a high level of innovation. We invite you to include spreadsheets, charts, graphs and other items to visualize performance. Be as specific as possible – remember to distill the important facts clearly for the judging panel. All submissions should be backed up with clear targets, measures and results.
8. Is it possible to include spreadsheets, PDF files, pictures or videos in the application?
It is highly recommend including data sheets and/or media to support your case. Our submission tool provides the opportunity for uploads and link referrals.
9. When will winners be announced and what do winners receive?
Winners will receive a Golden Cat trophy recognizing their achievement. The trophy will be handed over at a Apéro this fall (details will follow shortly). Winners will also be named on this website and get lifelong cat-ppreciation.
