Once they submit the files, entrants are automatically labeled as applicants. The Judges representing a variety of industries will then review all applications and shortlist all entrants into Finalists for each category.

In the event of a dispute as to the category in which an entry(s) will be judged, the decision of the OStar Awards staff will prevail. Judges have the right to switch your entries to a different category if they found that your entries do not suit the categories you initially applied for.

Every entrant has a designated point of contact: a person with whom we communicate about the disposition of entries submitted.  We will send regular email correspondence to your organization’s point of contact, especially after OStar Award winners are announced in December. Your organization’s point of contact agrees to:

  • Read all email correspondence from us promptly and respond as requested or required.

If you are liable to pay shipping fees, they will be automatically charged to the credit card to which assessment fees were charged, approximately 10 days after the awards banquet, unless you first provide us with an alternate means of payment.  Your organization’s point of contact with us will receive an email in advance of the charge, noting the date that the charge will be made.  If assessment fees were not charged to a credit card, you will be invoiced for your shipping fees and payment is due upon receipt of your invoice.  That invoice will be emailed to your point of contact.

Non-payment of shipping fees is not an option: if you submit entries to the OStar Award, you agree to pay the fees due if any awards you win are not accepted at the awards event at which they are presented.   You may not opt out of paying them by asking to not receive your awards.

See the section above headed Maintenance of Your Entry Account Information.  We reserve the right to charge you shipping fees twice if your award shipment is returned to us because the shipping address in your entry-submission account is wrong, or you otherwise did not provide us with an alternate shipping address, and your awards are returned as undeliverable to us or to one of our award manufacturers.
