One of the judges works for the same organisation as me, can I still be nominated?
Yes, we are able to see if there is a conflict of interest between an entrant and a judge and will manage this situation by asking another judge to assist. We also ask all of our judges to declare if they feel compromised because they know the individual nominated.

If you have made a mistake on your nomination form, please contact us as soon as possible via london@globalwomanclub.com 
For the National Awards. it is decided by a combination of the public vote and the judges votes, with points allocated and the highest number of points is the winner. The judges here include the regional director in that country (or city) and the pioneer directors.
For the Global Woman Awards finalists, it will be decided by 50% of the public vote and 50% the judges. (Profiles are published on this page). Should there be more than one finalist with the same number of points, it will be decided either by the number of judges votes, and if still level, by the Global Woman founder and CEO, Mirela Sula as head judge.

Please note the judges’ decisions are final.
How does the public vote contribute to the final winners?
We appreciate some individuals have bigger networks than others. We encourage all nominees to use their social networks to call for votes should they be shortlisted. The vote count is a factor in the judging, however the amount of votes does not necessarily determine the winners of each category. The public vote for each category will be based on points according to the placing. If there are 10 finalists, first place will receive 10 points, 5th place 5 points and all others zero points. The same process will be applied with the judges.
The vote count alongside the judging are the only two factors in awarding for each category.
The judging panels will acknowledge five finalists out of each category. Among the 10 awards, one of them will be decided by the public vote only.
This allows the Global Woman awards to be of a balanced nature between public and judge’s decision and is neither a popularity contest nor an individual’s decision. (With the exception of a tied decision between the public and the judges, when it will go the the head judge).  
What happens if I’m shortlisted?
If you are shortlisted, you will receive an email from Global Woman detailing your achievements and what happens next.
We will also publish our shortlist on the Global Woman website on 31st March 2019 and share your achievements via our social media.
Once shortlisted, you will be invited to attend a prestigious award’s ceremony, along with previous winners, sponsors, judges and supporters.
You will be able to buy individual tickets and/or tables from the Global Woman Summit website, once the shortlist is announced.
When and where is the award’s ceremony?
The Global Woman Awards will be taking place on 13 July 2019 at a prestigious venue in Central London. Anyone can purchase a ticket to join on the night.
Can we get feedback if we have been unsuccessful?
Unfortunately, due to the amount of nominations, we are unable to offer feedback for specific individuals.
Does being a nominee and a speaker at the Global Woman Summit give any advantage to the nominee?
Only in the sense that the speaker will have some more visibility in the promotion of the Global Woman Summit, however the public voting and the judges decision will have been made before the Summit and the awards has taken place. It is for you as the nominator and the nominee to generate publicity and visibility for any other activities. 

Note: Should a nominee wish to be a speaker at the Global Woman Summit they can contact us at: info@globalwoman.com 
How can I keep up to date?
If you have been nominated, you will receive emails from Global Woman throughout the process, detailing what’s happening next and whether you have been shortlisted or not.
