  • The Judges’ evaluations must be as objective as possible and will be performed based on criteria, supporting the identification of which nominees have an outstanding performance.

  • Judging Committee Members allocation will be defined by drawing. To avoid any conflict of interest, judges cannot evaluate nominees from the countries they are representing or from their countries of birth.

  • The evaluation process is strictly technical and there is no political or any other non-technical aspect that may influence or change the evaluation results. The Judging Committee decisions are final and cannot be disputed by the competitors.

  • The evaluation process and its scores are proprietary to PMO Global Alliance and will not be disclosed to anyone, except to the Auditing Committee, composed of Judging Committee Members from the same home countries of the finalists that will be able to verify all the detailed information of the final evaluations, ensuring the reliability of the evaluation process.
