The Jury

For each award, the Jury is in charge of assessing the final nominees. The Jury members are chosen among acknowledged representatives of the business community.

Members of the Jury will be asked to vote for nominees in each category. The final nominees list will constitute the basis for choosing the winners in each category. Any information provided by the final nominees will be treated as strictly confidential and will only be used for the purpose of designating the Award Winners. The award is given at the majority of the votes. In case of equal votes, there will be a second round of votes.

Members of the Jury are independent from the nominees for which they will have to vote. If otherwise they will withdraw from that specific vote.

The Jury is independent from the Organizer, namely Diplomat Media Events. All information will be treated as confidential and will only be shared with the relevant Jury members. The final decision on the winners of each category will be taken in a meeting between Jury members in the week preceeding the awards Gala. The meeting will be organized by The Diplomat at a date and place announced to all Jury members.

The Award Winners

The name of the Award Winners will be announced during a gala evening held at Athenee Palace Hilton Hotel in Bucharest on April 23, 2013, starting 7 P.M.
