About Votes

A fair and transparent voting system by category lead judge, jury panel and audience

Lead Judge

Coliving Awards invites the most prominent and talented industry experts to collaborate as jury members. Each category has an assigned lead judge chosen by his/her expertise in the field. The vote of the lead judge accounts for 35%.

Jury Panel

A diverse group of industry professionals are contributing their vote for each of the categories. Next to the lead judge vote, the jury in its entirety understands the relevance of the nominated project within the coliving scene in a broader context.


Coliving is most certainly an industry that has people at its core. Development and innovation is steered by the needs of future citizens, and that is why we open a percentage of the voting power to the broader audience. The polls are public during the process.
