The jury will base their allocation of points on the analysis of the Award Candidate’s website and/or on the Award Candidate’s submitted application file with pictures and/or by visiting the Award Candidate’s business centers (update 1 May 2017).

All Award Candidates have to submit their application to the Board members of the Jury.
