The Middle East & North Africa Stevie Awards are the only business awards program to recognize innovation in the workplace in 17 nations in the Middle East and North Africa region. The Stevie® Awards are widely considered to be the world’s premier business awards, conferring recognition for achievement in programs such as The International Business Awards® for 19 years.
Nicknamed the ‘Stevies’ derived from the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners during a virtual ceremony on 2 June 2021. Over 400 nominations from various organizations across the Middle East and North Africa were submitted for the award. Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 60 executives around the world acting as judges on six juries.
The Communitas Awards recognizes exceptional businesses, organizations, and individuals that are unselfishly giving of themselves and their resources, and those that are changing how they do business to benefit their communities. Communitas Awards was started in 2010 as an outgrowth of the pro bono recognition program of the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals, a several-thousand-member group that honors creative achievement and fosters partnerships with charities and community organizations.
Chief Executive Officer of QNET, Malou Caluza, says “One of QNET’s core values is centred on Service. Our aim is to serve our customers and our communities in the best way we can.
