A large proportion of the criteria is to see the makings of the campaign and all the behind-the-scenes work it takes to launch.

If your campaign ran outside of this time frame, the majority of the campaign must fall in between these months.

Judging, insofar as possible, will be remote. Two judges will judge each application and the final score will be the average of the two marks. In the case that the average score is the same, a 3rd independent judge will review the top 3 entries.

When are entries judged?

The judging commences October 2021 regardless of any extensions given.
