Category Captains Nomination Form

Category Captains 2021

Convenience Store News' Category Captains Awards competition recognizes overall excellence in innovative, creative and profit-generating category management platforms. Awards are presented in 20 categories.

Entries will be evaluated on such factors as how the supplier supported customers' needs and built sales overall in the category; what new programs, technologies, business systems, merchandising schemes or promotional tactics were employed; and what their retailer partners think of their category management platform.

Last year's Category Captains can be seen here.


Convenience store industry suppliers that provide their retail customers with category leadership and innovation in any of the listed award categories are eligible.


Entries must be received by January 15, 2021.
