Voting System

Home > Methodology > Voting System
The voting system is tiered and consists of the following steps:

How entries are judged?
The internationally influential jury panel composed of established scholars, prominent press members, creative design professionals and experienced entrepreneurs votes all entries. Each entry is given a score between 0 to 100 by each jury member voting on them, jury members are also allowed to cast negative votes for issues relating to entry guidelines or intellectual property rights. Before final score calculation, raw evaluation scores are weighted based on evaluation criteria, the expertise of jury members, and classification of jury members to arrive at weighted scores. For each category, standard deviation is calculated and gauss error function is used during conversion of the calculated normal distribution to approximated cumulative standard normal distribution within range of 0 to 100. Award status depends on the calculated z-score as long as the threshold for minimum raw score requirement for each category is met.

Voting System
Each design is voted several times with three different Jury, and votes of Focus Group, Academic and Professional Jury members are weighted at the end to finalize the score.
