Empire Award Winners on Why You Should Apply

The deadline to submit an entry for this year’s Empire Awards is August 19, less than ten days away. In case you were wondering why you should apply, we asked a few previous awardees to reflect back on their experience and express why winning an Empire Award was important to their organization.
