The award judges will be elected annually by the Steering Committee, in accordance with the field in which the award is granted. The jury panel will consist of seven leading figures in local design, including academics, curators and researchers, designers, industry leaders, a senior international figure, and a representative from the Edmond de Rothschild Foundation.
The judging process will be conducted in two stages: In the first stage, the local judges will convene for preliminary judging to select the shortlist of nominees, and in the second stage the award entries will be translated into English, and the final judging will be attended by the international judge and the representative of the Foundation. In order to ensure impartiality throughout the judging process, the judges will remain anonymous until the winners’ names are published.
