A. 11:59 p.m. Central Standard Time, March 1*
*Please note that Fellows nominations are due by November 1st for consideration.
A.Yes, so please be sure you have all the necessary materials to submit to the form.
A. Documents must be in PDF, Microsoft Word, or plain text format. Images must be in RGB JPG format or GIF format. PDF and Word documents should have all fonts embedded.
A. Yes. If you scan documents, you will need to save them in RGB JPG, GIF, or PDF format. If you plan to save in RGB JPG or GIF format you will need to scan the documents at 72 dpi or convert them to 72 dpi after scanning, otherwise they will show up too big when the committee members go to view them in a web browser. If you plan to save in PDF format, you may scan at up to 300 dpi.
A. Yes, but be sure to embed all fonts in your Word and PDF documents. This can be done in Word by: 1. On the Tools menu, click Options. 2. Click the Save tab. 3. Select the Embed TrueType fonts check box. The method for embedding fonts in a PDF will differ depending on how you create the PDF. Some fonts may not embed properly causing the committee to be unable to read the document if they don’t have the font, so if in doubt, you should use common fonts that everyone will have — preferably Times New Roman or Arial.
A. Fields on the nomination form for which files can be uploaded will have a link named “Upload a File” in a box. When you click this, a window will pop up. In this popup window, click the “Browse” button and locate the file that you want to upload on your computer. Once you have found and selected it, press the “Open” button. Then, press the “Upload” button and wait for notification that the file has been uploaded. Click the “OK” button on the popup notification window and then click the “Finished” button. This will close the upload window and reload the main page. Once the main page is reloaded, a message saying that a document has been uploaded will have replaced the “Upload a File” text in the box for that field. The new message will include a “[View]” link that should be clicked so that you may check to make sure that the file displays properly.
A. If you have already submitted your nomination, but have changes to make, please contact Sam Shafer (firstname.lastname@example.org) for adjustments to be made on the back-end of your entry. There is currently no option to edit a nomination that has already been submitted.
A. Once you have submitted your nomination, you will receive a confirmation email with a summary of the nomination.
A. No. Once a nomination has been submitted, you cannot view it again. Once the deadline to nominate has arrived, you will no longer be able to submit to the nomination form.
