fourth edition of the prestigious Awards, which received 1732
submissions from 133 different countries, shows incredible creativity
and diversity and sends across a powerful message of hope in the face of
challenges, especially amid the coronavirus pandemic.
FIVE VOTING STAGES
The longlist represents the first stage of judging. Approximately 20
percent of the works qualify to this stage. Here is a reminder of the
five judging stages:
carefully reviewing all submissions; checking dates, links and files,
the Awards judging process began in December, involving a panel of
specialists, EC members and Jury members, whose average ratings result
in the longlists.
second voting stage, which is exclusively carried out by the EC members
(representing 24 different nations), will narrow down the selected
works into a shortlist of candidates.
third and fourth voting stages are carried out by the Jury --12
respected members from the sport media industry representing the five
continents-- as they first select the top 10 and then the top 3.
one day before the ceremony, which will take place in Europe in May
2022 (date and location to be confirmed following the evolution of the
pandemic), a final voting stage takes place and the results remain
secret until the announcement.
Stay tuned for more information, as the road for sport media excellence is just beginning! And it will be an exciting journey.
