About the Process

The Night of the Stars Awards Program is a two-step nomination process. From early June to mid-July, NAIOPWA solicits project and firm nominations online. In early August, finalists are notified and receive their presentation day, time(s) and additional details. All finalists have the opportunity to make a presentation to a panel of judges in mid-September. Virtual presentations for each project/category will be limited to approximately 5 minutes.  Finalists will be announced at the September Breakfast.
