Picking the winners of the M&A Mid-Market Awards is always a challenge. For 2012 and 2013, the tough part was selecting companies and individuals who prevailed when dealmaking was down. But for 2014, the trick will be to identify those who outperformed in an up year for middle-market M&A. You can help us determine the winners by responding to our call for nominations, due Jan. 31, 2015. Click here for the online nomination form.

The M&A Mid-Market Awards honor the leading dealmakers and deals that set the standard for transactions in the middle market in the previous year. To determine the winners, Mergers & Acquisitions considers a variety of factors. We look for companies and individuals who overcame the challenges the year brought, embodied the trends of the period and took their businesses to the next level.
