Judging Process

Judging Process

The entries for Rising Star Awards will be judged online without any manual intervention by the senior industry leaders.

All the entries will be sent for judging to multiple jury members. The average highest marks for the entrant in every category will decide the winners.

All jury members are barred from judging any entry with which they have a personal or professional affiliation or any other conflict of interest.

Judging Criteria

Every entry will be judged on the parameters mentioned below to earn a maximum of 10 points on each parameter.


We understand that conflicts of interest are a potential threat, and we take these conflicts very seriously. We do everything in our power to minimize occurrences of conflicts while ensuring that the best work is recognised.

The Rising Star Awards does not influence the judges in any way. We select a diverse body of judges who we feel are objective, respected, and knowledgeable in their category. The Nominees and Winners are entirely in the hands of the esteemed Jury, who select and vote on the entries through an independent process.

Judges may not vote for any entry with which they have a conflict of interest; such situations are closely monitored and policed accordingly.
