Depending on the number and quality of entries received, the Jury reserves the right to merge categories, or to create new prizes. The jury may reorganise the categories on the basis of the number of entries. Jury members may not vote for a prize for which their company is a candidate, associated brand or directly or indirectly involved. Jury discussions are private and decisions are final and cannot be appealed.

The jury will discuss all applications. The jury will select a winner in each category by secret vote. The jury may select joint winners or decide not to award any prize.

each item is not specified:
