Are there any geographical restrictions?

No geographical restrictions. All we require is that entries are in English.

Is the entry information publicly disclosed?

All entries become publicly accessible after the winners are announced, along with the votes and comments of each jury member. That way we ensure a transparent judging process.

Who will be evaluating the entries?

Each category is evaluated by 5 to 10 judges. All judges are assigned a week before the start of the judging phase, based on their respective field of expertise.

Before voting, each member of the jury declares any affiliations with the entries. Judges are not allowed to vote for entries they are affiliated with and in some cases for the entire entry category.

How are entries evaluated?

The evaluation process is conducted online via the Awards Management Software by Weemss. The judges evaluate each entry with scores from 1 to 10, where 1 is the lowest and 10 the highest. The scores are based on each category’s criteria. Judges are allowed to post additional comments in regards to the score they have given for each entry.

How are the finalists determined?

Once the judging phase is over, we announce publicly 3-5 highest average rating entries from each entry category.

Which entries are announced as winners?

The entry with the highest average score from each category is officially announced as the winner for that category. An entry must reach a minimum average score of 7.00, otherwise no winner is announced for the category. If there is a tie, the Delphi method is applied. Runner-up and third place are also announced.

What do I get?

The winners are announced at the awards ceremony in Dublin, Ireland on 24 January 2017.

First prize winners are invited onstage to receive a commemorative awards trophy. Winners get to make a short speech.

Second prize winners are also invited onstage to receive a corresponding certificate.

Third prize winners receive a corresponding certificate after the ceremony.

All winners get an electronic badge, which can be displayed on their website to mark the achievement.
