Special awards give applicants the opportunity to identify genuine, existing niches and these awards may support specific brand marketing objectives. Since the number of applicants will be smaller for special niches and for a special territory at the same time, the chances of winning such an award are higher. However, your proposed category should not be so different that it may exclude too many products from nomination.
