We encourage all companies to participate and submit entries and take part in celebrating business excellence and leadership in the Canadian industry.

The Awards are designed to reward mills and individuals involved in the pulp & paper and forest-based industry and are open to participants from across Canada. Those submitting an entry for their mill or for an individual should check with their mill management/head office to ensure they have the approval to enter the Awards.
Submissions should be comprehensive and concise and, as a general rule, should not exceed 10 pages.
Judging of entries
A select panel of judges made up of industry experts and representatives of the PAPTAC Executive Council and members will be judging entries. The judges use a specific set of criteria to review submissions in each category. Those submitting an entry should carefully review the procedure and criteria in order to submit as complete an entry as possible. Corporate sponsors of Awards are not involved in the judging process.
