5.    Once a company is shortlisted as an Honouree, it will have to pay an Honouree Package fee that covers part of the costs of producing all Honouree-exclusive materials and trade-wide global marketing and promotion campaigns.

For each company, the Honouree Package fee is USD2,800 for the first shortlisted category and USD500 respectively for the second and third category being shortlisted as Honouree. So if a company is shortlisted for two categories, the fee will be USD3,300 and USD3,800 for three categories.

By submitting an entry, the entrant agrees to pay this fee, which is non-refundable.

This fee will be charged once the company is shortlisted as an Honouree. Please visit http://www.jwawards.com/entry-submission/ for further details on what the Honouree Package fee covers.
