Procedure, judging and award ceremony

The nominees submit a dossier about their activity that is then evaluated by an interdisciplinary jury. The jury will assess the dossiers nominated according to the following criteria: Originality and autonomy, innovativeness, professional quality, potential, and their local, national or international scope. The names of all the nominees will be published on the Netzhdk website, and an event will be organised for the winner that will be tailored individually to their award-winning work.
