2013 TUC Awarding System

 

This year the judging scheme remains more or less the same as in previous years.

The methodology by which the results are calculated

As previously mentioned the jury’s scoring is weighted 80%, with the public voting contributing 20%.

The winner of the jury scoring is awarded 8 points; second place receives 7.5 points and third place 7 points. All the rest of the shortlisted projects receive 6 points. 

Although this scheme allows for the possibility that any of the shortlisted projects could win, the jury favourites do have a big advantage.

The winner of the public vote is awarded 2 points. All other projects receive a fraction of the full 2 points based on the formula:

Vn/Vw * 2 = Pn

Vn – number of votes project receives

Vw – number of votes winner of public vote receives

Pn – number of points for the respective project; max. 2 points 

or less for winner of public vote

 

Total result

The final, total result is calculated from the sum of jury points + public vote points, which gives total project points – a maximum of 10 if both the jury and public select the same project as winner.

 

2013 Awards

This year we will award the overall winner, the project selected for realisation.

We will also award both the jury winner and winner of the public vote, and either could well be the overall winner too – it all depends on how the vote goes. 

Beside three winners the jury also awarded 3 honorable mentions.

Akripol, one of the competition partners, will award one project for "the best implementation of Akripol materials".

Cast your vote, because every vote counts. Just as a reminder, in the 2011 competition only a few votes cast on the very last day of voting separated the winner from the second place finisher.

Voting matters!
