Can I re-submit my application?

Yes, it is possible to resubmit your project. The resubmission of the project is considered as a new submission and therefore additional charges may apply. Please contact us if you would like to resubmit your project.

Can I save the progress of my application?

Unfortunately this is not possible. Make sure that, before clicking the ‘submit’ button, your application includes all the necessary information and deliverables to meet the criteria for the project category.

What is the evaluation criteria?

The criteria are defined individually for each category. You can find the criteria that apply to your category on the Categories page and in the relevant application guide on that page. Make sure that your application contains all the necessary deliverables for your category. The specific deliverables can also be found in the Categories page.

What does the voting process look like?

Submitted projects are evaluated in three phases: (1) Eligibility, (2) Evaluation by a Lead Judge and (3) Jury Panel & Public Voting. In phase one, all applications will be reviewed by our internal team to make sure that all criteria are being met. During the eligibility phase our team will not judge or give a specific score to your application. We will simply make sure that the specific set of criteria are well represented in the deliverables from each applicant. 

After our team reviews the applications for eligibility, our lead judge will evaluate all eligible presentations from his / her own category for phase two. According to the criteria checklist and required answers to respective questions, our lead judge will give a score for each application, which will result in the selection of maximum 4 finalists and 1 or more honourable mentions. 

Further evaluation by the whole jury panel will also be based on the set criteria and respective questions, and our wider jury panel will be responsible for nominating the winners of each category, alongside the public vote and the previous scores from each jury member. The public vote will be processed on LinkedIn, giving the voice to our followers and wider community. 

The final result is calculated as follows: the lead judge has 35% ruling, followed by 35% ruling from audience LinkedIn voting and 30% ruling from industry relevance stance by the jury panel. The winners will be exposed and awarded during the Coliving Awards ceremony.

When will I know if my project has been nominated?

Nominations will be announced in May 2022. Follow our LinkedIn page and subscribe to our newsletter for more information.

My project was nominated. What happens now?

First, invite everyone to vote on your project in the LinkedIn poll. The polls will be live from the 25th of May and will be closed on the 8th of June. All nominees will receive a notification from the Coliving Awards team about how to attend the Coliving Awards ceremony and further steps.

What happens if my project was not nominated?

Although in an ideal world we would be able to honour and award each of the innovative, creative and outstanding projects we received, we need to stand by the rules of the competition. After careful deliberation of our lead judges, a selected number of projects are nominated, and therefore considered finalists of the Coliving Awards. If your project is not among the nominated projects this year you will also get notified via email.

We want to thank everyone for the enthusiasm and dedication to submit the applications. You are all welcome to participate next year as well. Join the ceremony to discover the winner of each of the 15 categories.
