In its sophomore year, the Pinnacle Awards will culminate in an Oct. 31 ceremony and luncheon at the Ritz-Carlton Tysons Corner, where the finalists will be recognized. Last year, the judges committee received over 125 nominations across 13 categories, downselecting to 50 top finalists.
The awards ceremony is for companies located in Washington, D.C., Virginia or Maryland. An executive and/or company can submit nominations for more than one category. Self-nominations are accepted.
