All individuals and organizations worldwide – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small – are eligible to submit nominations. The 2021 IBAs received entries from organizations in 63 nations and territories.
As the ongoing COVID-19 crisis will prevent winners from receiving their awards on stage during a traditional gala IBA banquet, winners will be celebrated instead during a virtual ceremony on Wednesday, 8 December.

Thrilled by his success, Mr. Randall stated: “This award reiterates my motto to live your life big. No matter how far out your dreams are, it’s possible for those who dare to dream, don’t ever give up.”
Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 260 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from June through early August.
The judging panel was chaired by Michelle S. Stephens, Chief Strategy Officer, Caribbean Strategy Inc., West Indies. It also consisted of prominent C-level executives from around the world including Jane Bryant, Director of Spire Communications, USA, Kirsten Ly, Executive Director, Advisor Growth Marketing Hightower Advisors, USA, and Lucinda Dobinson, CEO, Creative Covenant, UK
