THE AWARD PROCESS

HOW ARE NOMINEES SELECTED FOR THE PARIS APPRECIATION AWARDS?

Nominees for most categories of The Paris Appreciation Awards are chosen by a jury, media, Public polls, consultants, and influencers. The full list of outlets is available here.

Specialized juries will convene for other categories, including sectors.


Each voting outlet completes a confidential, unranked ballot based on its entire editorial staff’s collective and diverse opinion, listing out its top five choices in each category.


Ballots are tabulated, and the five that appear on the most ballots are put forth as nominees. In a tie, six (or more) nominees will be announced in a category.

WHY DO YOU USE JURY FOR VOTING?

Given the number of categories and the extended time required to evaluate products fully, a “voting outlet” approach allows for the widest possible critical assessment. A ballot submitted to The Paris Appreciation Awards represents an entire outlet’s collective opinion, not one individual’s point of view.

WHO SELECTS THE WINNERS?

Winners are determined by a blended vote between the voting jury (20%) and public fan voting (30%) Media voting 20% World Media Network 20% and 10% by consultants/Brand Ambassadors.
Fans can vote for their favorite categories on http://polls.worldmedianetwork.uk/ and also via social media platforms in various categories. Fan voting closes on Wednesday, August 8th, 2021, at 6 pm.

WHY DON’T FANS COMPLETELY CHOSE THE WINNERS?

Creating a 100% fan vote presents several challenges. First, given that some categories are exclusive to one platform, A public vote puts single-platform sectors at an inherent disadvantage over multi-platform titles. Also, it is important that winners cannot be “socially engineered” in any way. We find that a blended vote is the most credible and authentic way to select winners.

ARE VOTING OUTLETS GIVEN FREE OR ADVANCE COPIES OF PARIS APPRECIATION AWARDS FOR CONSIDERATION?

At the start of the Paris Appreciation Awards Season, Media publishers/ Jury/consultants/Brand Ambassadors, and the World Media Network team are provided with access to a list of sectors that will submit nomination ballots. While most of our voting outlets have access to awards sectors through the normal process, they can provide reviews of copies.

To ensure the voting process’s credibility, The Paris Appreciation Awards maintains a strict “no campaigning” policy. Jury are asked to avoid any communication that could be interpreted as “campaigning” for nomination. Any violations of this policy are reviewed and may lead to the disqualification of a title or, in extreme cases, disqualification of an entire sector’s slate from awards.

IS THERE AN ENTRY FEE TO ATTEND PARIS APPRECIATION AWARDS?
