Well folks, it is that time of year again. Think glitz, glamour, anticipation, joy, prestige and recognition from industry peers and partners. No not the Oscars, I am of course talking about the STM Star Awards 2014.

If you haven’t already seen your email, I have great pleasure in informing you that the voting season for this year’s awards is underway!

This is the unique industry event voted for by you, with thousands of votes cast annually. So agents, get thinking about which education partners have impressed you most over the last 12 months in the range of categories (including languages, vocational and secondary study). Educators, meanwhile, consider which agent partners in different world regions are deserving of your nomination.

This year is the ninth Star Awards, and with a number of Super Stars enshrined in the Hall of Fame over the last couple of years, there is plenty to play for in what is shaping up to be one of the most exciting ceremonies to date.

The voting period closes on May 9, and the lucky shortlisted nominees will be announced in a special pull-out booklet in the August issue of Study Travel Magazine.

And of course the winners will be unveiled in front of over 800 industry figures at the STM Star Awards gala dinner ceremony on 30 August, held, as ever, in the grand surroundings of the London Park Lane Hilton ballroom. Surely everyone’s favourite industry event of the year?

Last year was a fabulous evening, with possibly the most joyous victory celebration we have seen to date by one lucky winner. Can anybody top that this time around? Cast your votes wisely, and then start thinking about this year’s tuxedo or dress! I look forward to revealing the nominations later in the year!
