Protocols about Winning & Finalists
It’s so exciting to see women and nonbinary folks from all around the world getting nominated, becoming finalists, and winning WiV Awards!
This awards program seeks to celebrate and amplify all kinds of Voices every year. Below are a few protocols that support this end goal.
If someone has previously won a WiV Award, they are not eligible to be a finalist in that award category the following year. However, they are eligible to be nominated and become a finalist for a different award category.
For example if one year they win “Visionary,” they can be a finalist for “Woman of the Year” the next year but cannot be a finalist for “Visionary” again. Thus, one cannot win the same award several times. A person can be a finalist several times – though hopefully they win eventually!
Additionally, to give opportunities for many folks, a person can only be a finalist for one category per year.
