I was selected for PropertyCasualty360’s Insurance Luminaries last year. Can I apply again this year?

Candidates that were honored as Insurance Luminaries last year may be nominated once again by including updated details that do not mirror accomplishments from previous submissions. For optimal consideration, we suggest that recently chosen Insurance Luminaries be nominated in a separate category from which they were previously recognized. For instance, if a company was selected within the Technology Innovation category last year, they may be nominated within the Workplace Culture Innovation category, this year.

What if my nominee assumes a new role with a different company after the submission deadline?

By submitting a nomination, you are agreeing that should your nominee be selected as a 2024 Insurance Luminary, PropertyCasualty360 has the right to include them in the 2024 Insurance Luminaries recognition, regardless of whether or not the nominee has changed companies by the time of publication. That said, for accuracy purposes, you may reach out to Elana Ashanti Jefferson regarding a small update to the nominee’s bio, stating that they have since taken on a new role.

How does the judging process work?

Upon the submission deadline, PropertyCasualty360’s team of judges carefully reviews each nomination without bias. The judges utilize a scoring rubric and work diligently to select the industry’s most influential individuals, teams, companies, programs, practices and products across a variety of backgrounds and expertise. The judges base their decisions on an array of factors in correlation with the awards’ criteria and consider each nominee's different accomplishments and contributions. You may view more information on the judging process here.

How do I increase my chances of being selected?

Be as descriptive, yet concise as possible. Sounds redundant, but it’s simple. Provide details on why you think your nominee should be chosen as an Insurance Luminary, but leave out the fluff, like marketing content and self-congratulatory comments. Don’t hide the items of importance within pages of trivialities. Support your entry and statements with backup information — we love facts and figures.
