13. How is transparency ensured during the selection process?

The formality, independence and transparency of the selection process is one of the elements that define these Awards, therefore we take special care to ensure these aspects. Some of the mechanisms that we have established are:

  • The evaluation is carried out based on clearly established criteria and scores in evaluation tables used by the evaluators.
  • The committees and juries work based on operating guidelines that establish, among other aspects: how to manage conflicts of interest, the voting and tied scores.
  • We invite the winners from previous editions to the juries so that they know how the selection process first hand and can verify the transparency in the process.
