Evaluation

Our team has spent years perfecting the evaluation process to make sure your entries get fair and balanced scores.

Approval

Upon submission, each entry is assessed by the Eventex team to ensure it meets the eligibility criteria. If an entry is approved, it continues into the evaluation phase. 
Rejected entries receive feedback from our team on the reasons for rejection and how to make the necessary changes for re-submission. Last-minute entries that get rejected are not eligible for re-submission. Entries in jury-evaluated categories submitted up to a month before the submission deadline receive personalized detailed feedback regardless of whether resubmission is required.
To give your entries the best chance of winning, we recommend that you: 
Read carefully all the requirements and evaluation criteria;
Make sure that your application form is carefully filled out before submitting;
Follow the directions of the Eventex team if resubmission is required;
Do not leave submission for the last moment in case your entry requires resubmission.

Judging

Every year we invite experts and professionals from the world of events to form our jury panel — from event magazine journalists and heads of associations to representatives of convention bureaus, top influencers, and thought leaders, each with an in-depth understanding of the industry’s ever-changing landscape.All approved entries in a category are evaluated on their own merit, based on a set of pre-defined criteria. The final score of an entry is the total average score from the ratings given by each jury member in the category.
Each entry is evaluated by a panel of 4 – 8 judges, within a set of categories assigned in accordance with their field of expertise. The process ensures that any affiliations of a judge with any of the competing entries are taken into consideration, and respectively no judges are assigned categories where such entries are present.

Score normalization

All entries are evaluated with the application of score normalization. Introduced with the previous edition, this method uses a mathematical formula to ensure that every entry is scored based on the same set of standards, regardless of how many judges are evaluating the program submissions. Essentially, it helps reduce variation in judging by standardizing each judge’s scores, making Eventex Awards as objective as possible.
