|The Qually Award|
ATTENTION: The 2018 Qually Award call for proposals is now open!
DEADLINE to submit your Qually Award proposal: October 13, 2017
What is the Qually Award?
Since 2011, the QRCA has found a way to honor our creative problem solvers in a unique industry award, The QRCA Award for Excellence in Qualitative Research…or more affectionately known as the “Qually” Award.
This year the Qually Award is shaking things up a bit! Not only will the top three finalists present their proposals to the 2018 QRCA conference attendees in January, they will also receive discounted conference fees! Also, did we mention the winner (or winning team) of the 2018 Qualitative Excellence Award will receive a $1000 prize!?
This year is also slightly different as we involved clients in the process of submitting a hypothetical RFP. While the RFP here is not an actual RFP, clients had the opportunity to submit a topic of interest for the RFP. They also have the opportunity to see submissions and if they like what they see, they can reach out to the submitting party! This is a fantastic opportunity to further your exposure as a Qually and show off your creative methodologies!
Deadline to submit proposals is October 13. The finalists will be announced by November 1st, giving the top three just over 2 months to prepare their 15 minute conference presentation.
The winner will be announced at the end of the 2018 conference. In addition to bragging rights, the Qually winner will earn a short bio on our website, be promoted throughout the year on QRCA’s media channels, have their methodology showcased at the conference, have a shareable proposal to showcase to clients, take the main stage to receive the award, and be invited to join the Qually Award Committee in the future.
