The Stevie Awards have issued the call for entries for the 2021 (8th annual) Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards, the only business awards program to recognise innovation in business throughout the entire Asia-Pacific region. 

The Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards are open to all organisations in the 29 nations of the Asia-Pacific region: large and small, for-profit and non-profit, public and private. The awards focus on recognising innovation in all its forms, wherever it is achieved in the workplace. Entries will be accepted in eight languages – Chinese, English, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Thai, and Vietnamese – in the following awards category groups: Annual Report Awards & Other Publication Awards, Human Resources Awards, Video Awards, and more. 

New category groups for 2021 include Achievement Categories to recognise singular, innovative achievements of various types throughout the workplace, and COVID-19 Response Categories created to honor the contributions of individuals, groups, and organisations that have worked valiantly over the past months to keep us safe, healthy, employed, and informed. 

Asia-Pacific Stevie Award winners will be announced on April 8. Winners will be celebrated and presented their awards during a gala banquet on May 28 (health and safety conditions permitting) at the Lotte Hotel in Hanoi, Vietnam. Scores of professionals from throughout the region will participate in the judging process to determine the Stevie winners.

The Stevie Award trophies, made by the company that makes the Emmy and other major international awards, are among the world’s most coveted prizes. The name Stevie is taken from the name Stephen, which is derived from the Greek for “crowned.”

Stevie Awards competitions receive more than 12,000 nominations each year from organisations in more than 70 nations. Honouring organisations of all types and sizes and the people behind them, the Stevies recognise outstanding performances in the workplace worldwide.
