2021 CotY Awards

Each year, EM NARI has both first-time entrants and seasoned participants that go home with trophies.  No matter what your CotY experience level, follow these easy steps to be sure your entry is given full consideration by the judges and your work receives the esteem it deserves.  Please review the pages about eligibility and categories carefully.
