All timely and complete nominations are reviewed by the IAWP Awards Selection Team. The team includes the IAWP Awards Committee Chair, the IAWP Officers, the IAWP Executive Director, and other members as appointed by the International President.
Each nomination is reviewed and scored independently by at least three members of the selection team. The scores are combined to determine the winner. If two nominations are within five (5) total points of each other, the nominations will be reviewed and scored by the entire Selection Team.
The Selection Team may choose to not choose a winner in a category should there be no nomination received in category or the Selection Team unanimously decides no nomination meets the threshold of winning an award.
Selection Team members will recuse themselves from scoring nominations in which an actual or perceived conflict of interest may exist.
