Who selects the winners?
Risk All Stars are selected by editors at Risk & Insurance® magazine.
What criteria are used to select winners?
Winning applicants are selected based on the compelling nature of their story and accomplishments. The central question is, “Does the applicant’s story inform and/or motivate others?” While a compelling story is most important, winners also will exhibit success in any of the below:
Applicants can apply directly or be nominated by a colleague, broker, insurer or service provider.
Risk & Insurance® editors review all applicants and narrow the pool down to finalists based on the application. Each finalist is then interviewed by a staff member. A summary of the interview along with an evaluation form is completed by the editor performing the interview.
Important Note Regarding Confidentiality: We are very conscious of the sensitive nature of the information provided. Client references listed on applications and contacted by judges may choose to be on or off the record. This includes the client name, company name and additional identifying information. All other information on the application will be considered on-the-record unless specified otherwise.
Once all interviews are complete, the judging team meets to review the interviews and evaluations. Winners are selected.
There is no limit on the number of winners. Each Risk & Insurance® All Star is chosen based on the compelling nature of their story.
Winners will be announced in the September 15th issue of Risk & Insurance®.
