Public Voting Categories
As noted above, our panel of judges will review the nominees in each of the Public Voting Categories and provide a shortlist of four nominations per category. The top four nominations in each category will be made available for public voting and winners will be determined by popular vote.
The winners of the Juried Categories will be determined by the Tuned-In Canada judging panel. Judges are asked to evaluate the nominations in each category (using specific criteria) and provide a final mark out of 100.
The judges will pass their scores back to the CCSA for final review.
For the three public voting categories, the CCSA will review the selections to be sure that no single member is nominated more than once. Companies can be shortlisted only once per category.
Should a Member be shortlisted more than once, the CCSA will consult with the Member to select the strongest nominee to go forward to the shortlist.
The top four nominees in each of the three public voting categories will be made available on the Tuned-In Canada website for voting.
Voting takes place from March 18 – April 1, 2021, and online vote accumulations will be made public.
Online voting closes on April 1, 2021, at midnight (AST).
Winners in each category will be calculated in two ways.
1. Total Votes – A trophy will be awarded to the nominee with the most total votes. A cash prize of $1,000 will also be donated to a community charity or organization of the winner’s choice.
2. Weighted Votes – A trophy will be awarded to the nominee with the most votes, adjusted for the size of the Member’s subscriber base. A cash prize of $1,000 will also be donated to a community charity or organization of the winner’s choice.
|Company A Entry||Company B Entry||Company C Entry|
|Subs per CCSA SPB||1000||400||100|
|Weighted Votes (Votes/Subs)||.15||.25||.5|
|Winner – total votes||Winner – weighted votes|
If the same entry wins on both total and weighted votes/score, the winner will receive both $1,000 prizes for the category.
