Prize winners are selected using a two-stage selection process. First, a body of recognized experts selects the best entries (finalists) in each of the categories from all those submitted. An independent panel of judges made up of representatives from research, science, industry and the trade press then chooses this year’s winners from among the finalists.
Up to three winners will be selected from the list of finalists, and up to five winners will be awarded in the Outstanding Projects category. All winners receive a certificate and a trophy. The winners will also receive a signet as well as a comprehensive marketing package, which they can use to present their award in an effective manner. Even before the prize is awarded, all finalists benefit from the organizers’ comprehensive communication measures, which make the innovations known to the general public. Participating in the AWARD is worthwhile in any case!
There is no prize money. The winners receive a trophy and have the right to use the AWARD signet in their advertising. The advantage of the AWARD signet is its neutrality and independence, the professional expertise it represents, and the associated marketing effect. An important advantage for finalists and winners is the high marketing value of the Award.
