NACE and Legend Awards


    What is the Legacy of Excellence NACE Denver Award (LEGEND)?

    The LEGEND award is designed to acknowledge the extraordinary efforts, performance, and outstanding contributions of NACE members in the special events industry.

    Who can enter?

    Any NACE member in good standing on or before June 1, of the entry year is eligible to enter.

    Why should I enter?

    By entering the LEGEND competition, you showcase the caliber of work that you or your company is capable of. Industry peers from outside NACE chapters around the country will judge the entries, and the awards reflect your talent and help your company stand apart from the competition. Receiving an award publicly demonstrates the exceptional quality of work that you and your company have achieved. 


    In order to maintain fairness in the judging, all submissions are reviewed and judged by members from an outside NACE Chapter. 

    How do I enter?

    The next several pages outline the application process for a LEGEND Award. Be sure to follow all of the rules and submit your entry by the noted deadline. All entries must be for events that occurred between December 1, 2014 and December 31, 2015. 


    Failure to comply with rules will lead to disqualification. We are unable to notify entrants if their entries are disqualified for any reason. Fees for disqualified entries are nonrefundable.  

    Where and when will the LEGEND awards be presented?

    NACE Denver will recognize the outstanding accomplishments of NACE event professionals at the Annual Dinner and Awards Gala in February.
