Public online voting has now ended and we are delighted to share the names of the final nominees in each of the 12 categories of the first annual BOLD Awards.
The online votes that were cast will count for 50% of the final decisions, and the introduction of our international panel of judges to the process will also account for 50% of the overall selection of winners. Judges will evaluate each nominee on the basis of Level of Impact 40%, Scalability 30%, Transparency 20%, and H-factor 10% (Human & Social).
In conjunction with our event co-hosts H-FARM the final award ceremony will take place at a gala dinner held at their campus in Venice, Italy, on April 5. Attendance is limited mainly to the award winners, category sponsors and some of our corporate partners and investors, though a few tickets remain available to spend a unique evening in their company. Apply to Attend here if you think you’ve got what it takes to spend an evening with the BOLDEST.
