Is the entry information publicly disclosed?
All entries are made public after the winners are announced, along with the votes and comments of each jury member. This way, we ensure complete transparency of the Eventex Awards.
Who gets to evaluate the entries?
The Eventex Awards judges panel is hand-picked among top professionals, thought leaders and industry influencers from the world of events. Each entry in a category is evaluated by 5 to 10 judges. Every judge is assigned a group of categories, in accordance with their field of expertise. Before the judging phase, each judge is obliged to declare any affiliations with the entries. In such cases they do not get to vote within the category where such affiliated entries exist.
How are entries evaluated?
The evaluation process is conducted online via Awards Management software by Weemss. The judges evaluate each entry with scores from 1 to 100, where 100 is the best possible score. The evaluation is based on a set of criteria and rating the entries is done in 2 stages with the Delphi method applied. After the initial scoring phase, the judges for each group of categories take part in an online session hosted by a facilitator. During these sessions they get to discuss the entries and the reasoning behind their scores. Eventually, they can revise their initial scores, if they wish to do so. All judges are required to post commentary in regards to the score they have given for each entry.
How are the finalists determined?
Once the judging phase is over, the 3 entries with the highest average ratings from each category are announced as finalists.
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. The winner must have a minimum average score of 70/100, otherwise no winner is announced for the category. Second and third place are also announced. The judges do not get to vote for the People’s Choice category. The winner of this category is decided by public voting. The Best Agency award is awarded to the agency that wins the most awards. If it’s a tie 2nd and 3rd places are added to the equation. If it’s still tied the accumulated rating across 1st, 2nd and 3rd place is also added to the equation.
