The judging process
The application forms of the 13 nominated internationale projects are shared with all the members of the jury
Based on the supplied information and the public available information about the project, every member of the jury individually rates the judging criteria with 0-10 points (hgher is better), including a short motivation.
(Judging Criteria below)
The members of the jury are allowed to request the participants for more information.
The members of the jury may visit projects and consult with each other. This is not compulsory.
After all scores are submitted, the organising country will share the scores with all members of the jury.
The project with the highest score will be selected as a winner. In the situation that two projects score the same, the jury will vote for the winner.
The award event will take place at a date and location in Belgium to be determined later.
The prize consists mainly of honour. A lot of attention for the project in the (printed and social) media is expected.
In addition, the winning project will receive a ‘trophy’.
Who to contact?
If you have any questions, or need more details, don’t hesitate to contact the organisation. Each participating country also has a local contact. The members of the jury cannot be contacted unless they ask for it.
