The Judging Process is divided into three main stages

Stage 1: Verification

Stage 2: Quality Auditing

Stage 3: Online Judging

Stage 1: Verification

Verification

All Entries submitted are directly and automatically in this Stage, directed to the Registration Committee. The Registration Committee checks and verifies every submission; including the personal information of the Participant, correct Age Group selection, correct category selection, number of attachments submitted within the Entry, and compliance with the NBH Award General Terms and Conditions and the submission requirements for the category.

Participation Follow-Up

If there is missing or inaccurate information or the Entry is not complying with the NBH Award General Terms and Conditions, the Registration Committee will notify the Participant.

The Participant will then have the chance to edit and correct the information or the submitted Entry and re-submit their work to compete in the NBH Award. After re-submission, the new Submission will be treated as a new Entry.*

Promotion

If the Entry has successfully been verified; all information is true and accurate, the Entry is promoted to the Quality Auditing Stage.

Stage 2: Quality Auditing

Quality Auditing

Only verified Entries will proceed to this stage, in which the Quality Auditing Committee (QAC) checks and validates every Submission; including quality of the work, completeness, correct content within attachments, and compliance to the category-specific rules of the Entry.

Participation Follow-Up

If the Entry fails in any of the criteria mentioned in the previous point, or the Entry is not in compliance with the category-specific rules it has been submitted into, the QAC will notify the Participant.

The Participant will then have the chance to edit and correct the information or the submitted Entry and re-submit their work to compete in the NBH Award. After re-submission, the new Submission will be treated as a new Entry.*

Promotion

If the Entry has successfully passed the Quality Auditing Stage; i.e. all information is correct and category-specific rules are met, the Entry is promoted to the Judging Stage.

Stage 3: Online Judging

Online Judging

After an Entry has successfully passed the Quality Auditing Stage, the Entry will be sent to the category-specific Judging Panel.

Scoring, Confidentiality & Rounds

All members of the Judging Panel will evaluate and grade the Entry separately and an average score is calculated for each Entry.

Each entry will have a unique reference and will not contain or hint to any information about the Participant; to avoid biased evaluation and decisions made by the Judging Panel.

There are three (3) rounds of Online Judging to select the finalists (top three) in each Age Group in a category.

Participation Follow-Up

During the evaluation process, if the Judging Panel requires additional information regarding the Entry submitted, the Judging Panel Committee will then contact the Participant and request the required details and information. The Judging Panel Committee will be the intermediary between the Participant and the Judging Panel to ensure Participant secrecy and unbiased judgments.

*Note: This service (allowing re-submissions) will be stopped seven (7) days (one week) before the announced Submissions Deadline of the NBH Award. All Late Entries that do not pass the Verification Stage will be disqualified.

Finalists will be contacted directly to be invited to the NBH Award | Awarding Ceremony; during which the winners will be announced. The winners will not be disclosed until the NBH Award | Awarding Ceremony.
