MOMMY AWARDS TIMELINE
The nomination period begins in May and lasts through August. It takes us a couple of weeks to get all the nominees loaded into our voting system. Voting begins in mid September and winners are announced in early October.

HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT
This awards is simply about Moms recognizing other Moms (and Dads and Grandmas) for their everyday achievements. After all, parenting is the hardest (and most rewarding) job in the world. We just figured someone ought to make a big deal about it!

HOW DO I NOMINATE MY FRIEND?
It’s simple. Just go to the nomination page on our site and fill out the info. Your friend will be notified about their nomination and we will ask them if they want to participate in the awards. We have never had a mom say no. But if they do, its ok. Sometimes Moms can be a little shy.

CAN I NOMINATE MY FRIEND IN MORE THAN ONE CATEGORY?
We would love to recognize your friend for all their cool attributes, however, we want to recognize as many moms as possible. So we ask you to pick one category which best fits your friend and nominate them for that one.

ELIGIBILITY
Nominees must be a resident of the continental Unites States. We are unable to ship prizes outside the continental United States.

JUDGING
Public voting will determine the finalists based on the number of the nominations and votes.
