The criteria are defined individually for each Award category. You can find the criteria that apply to your category on the Categories page. Make sure that your application contains all the necessary deliverables for your category. The specific deliverables can be found also in the Categories page.
Submitted projects are evaluated in three phases: Eligibility (1), Evaluation by a Lead Judge (2) and Jury Panel & Public Voting (3).
During phase one (Eligibility) of our selection process, all applications are carefully reviewed by our internal team to ensure that they meet our criteria. At this stage, our team does not assign any scores or make judgments about the applications. Instead, we focus on verifying that each applicant has met the specific set of criteria that we require. Once our team has determined that an application meets the eligibility requirements, it moves on to phase two.
In phase two (Evaluation by a Lead Judge), our lead judge evaluates all eligible presentations within their respective categories. The lead judge assesses each application according to our criteria checklist and the required answers to the respective questions. Based on this evaluation, the lead judge assigns a score to each application. The top four highest-scoring applications are selected as finalists, and there may also be one or more honourable mentions.
The wider jury panel also evaluates the applications during phase two, using the same criteria and questions as the lead judge. The panel is responsible for nominating the winners of each category, along with input from the public vote and scores from each jury member. The public vote takes place on LinkedIn, giving our followers and wider community the chance to have their say, this is phase three (Jury Panel & Public Voting).
To calculate the final result, the lead judge's ruling carries a weight of 35%, while the audience LinkedIn voting carries a weight of 35%. The remaining 30% of the ruling is based on the industry relevance stance taken by the jury panel.
The winners will be exposed and awarded during the Coliving Awards ceremony.
According to the public vote and thanks to a very strict evaluation procedure, we allow all Coliving Awards collaborators, including founding partners, partners and sponsors to submit their project to Coliving Awards. The judging process was designed in a way to provide the highest level of transparency, with a three stage ruling from the category lead judge, jury panel and public vote.
