If the nominees belong to a center, group, lab, etc., the nomination could be made in the name of the group. Otherwise, individuals in the collaborative group could be nominated, but the requirement is that the people or units get nominated for a program of scholarship (not for a few loosely linked papers) that speaks to the spirit of the award. The nomination letter should clearly explain the rationale.
