Winners are chosen by a public vote.
The jury will ensure companies are listed in the correct categories.
This means the results are a real market recognition of how your partners consider your business and relation.
We have two waves of votes on the website in which all voter can vote once!
All voters have to identify themselves as we have integrated many filters to secure the reliability of each vote. And of course, you cannot vote for your own company or even category, so you completely rely on your network! This is what the Channel is all about, you have to be quoted, supported and nominated by your partners!
The first wave allows you to freely name your preferred partner in each category where you are allowed to vote (not your own) Closing December 14th.
In the second wave, you are invited to vote again but out of the list of the names that have been the most quoted during the first round, the nominees. Voting second round ends 18th January.
It’s during the event itself, on Thursday 31stJanuary that the guests will have the final word and the last live vote to choose the winners for each category from the remaining finalists.
Therefore, we insist on the importance of campaigning! We encourage you to spread the word and ask your partners for their support in you making it to the first round. If you don’t set up a campaign the others will, and every vote could make the difference. It’s part of the positive Channel Awards dynamic next to invite of course your best partners as it’s all about people and networking!
