AMAZING QUALITY The
fourth edition of the prestigious AIPS Sport Media 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 and in
conflict zones where sport can also mean hope.
JUDGING SYSTEM EXPLAINED The
Awards judging process began in December, involving a panel of 4
specialists, 24 EC members and 12 Jury members, whose average ratings
resulted in the longlists, selecting approximately 20 percent of the
works received (1st stage).
EC members narrowed down the selected works into a shortlist of
candidates. Each member was granted a number of votes depending on the
category. The works with the most total votes are included in the
shortlist (2nd stage).
third and fourth voting stages are carried out by the Jury —12
respected members from the sport media industry representing the five
continents— that will first select the top 10 (finalists) and then the
top 3 (podium nominees).
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.
After the final ceremony, the Awards will also publish the Continental
rankings per category, with the highest rated works in Africa, The
Americas, Asia, Europe and Oceania.
