THE THIRD ANNUAL
CELEBRATING THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE BEST IN THE COMMUNITY INDUSTRY
The Community Industry Awards celebrate the achievements of the best in the community industry.
This program began in 2019, when the CMX team looked back on the year and were in awe of the incredible achievements of the people and organizations in this industry. We knew we needed to celebrate – publicly, and with a big splash! – and so the Community Industry Awards were born.
The 2022 Community Industry Awards will be the third annual season of this awards program, and we can’t wait to celebrate the achievements of the best in the community industry!

Yes! However, you can only nominate one person or community per category.
Yes! You are welcome to nominate yourself, your community, or someone on your team! Go ahead, toot your own horn.
We require your email in order to track the number of times you have voted per category. You are able to vote once per person per category. We will not use your email for any other communications without your permission.
Once a nomination is submitted, the CMX team looks at the quality of the nomination (are the questions answered in full, does the nomination include evidence of why the nominee meets the criteria for the award, and how relevant the nomination is for the particular category).
All accepted nominations will be put up to a public vote.
Once the public has had their say, our expert judges will score each nomination out of ten, ten being the highest score (criteria: thoughtful response in application, clear examples shared that show measurable growth/success, etc.).
Public votes will be tallied and each nomination will be ranked based on the number of votes they received, using a scale where 1 is the least number of public votes.
To tally the final score, the public vote rank was added to the average of the judges scores
In the event of a tie in the final score, the nominee with the higher vote from the judges is the winner.
In this example, the nominee received the most public votes (at 103), there were 15 nominees in this category, and the average score from the judges was 9. We add the ranking (15), to the average score from our judges (9), and receive the final score (24). The final score is how we determine the winner
|Public Votes||Ranking||Expert Judges||Final Score|
