Nominate an Individual 
Nominees in these categories are people that made innovation happen within the animal health industry. They can have invented a product, program or procedure, developed groundbreaking research or even been a catalyst for change within a classroom, inspiring others to commit to a life of
innovation themselves.

There are five subcategories:
  • Veterinarians
  • Veterinary Technicians/Nurses
  • Practice Managers
  • Students (or those that were students when the innovation was created)
  • Other – those that had a profound impact on the industry as business leaders, elected officials, journalists, authors or animal advocates.

  • Please Note:

    Nominations open on February 5, 2017 and will close on May 1, 2017.

    There is no cost to nominate an individual or organization.

    You must be a member of the animal health profession to nominate an individual or organization. You can nominate as many individuals or organizations as you feel are deserving of an award.

    Individual award recipients must be alive at the time of nomination.

    Comprehensive award nominations will be viewed favorably. Supporting documentation and video files uploaded to demonstrate both the innovation and its impact are encouraged.
    The VIC and NAVC board, advisory board, and committee members, as well as sponsors, do not influence the outcome of VIC Innovation Award voting. As such these individuals are eligible to participate in the award program if nominated in the individual and/or organizational categories. If a conflict of interest arises during the award administration process due to a personal relationship with the award nominee, the Advisory Board member or impacted individual will recuse themselves from the validation and discussion about that particular nominee.
