RULES & JURY

Eligibility:
1. All entries must be advertisements, BTL or media effectiveness activities created by Jordan-based agencies.
2. All entries must have been published, aired or released within the allocated period that the ceremony covers (usually, two previous calendar years).

 

Judging Process:
Entries will be evaluated by a panel of professionals. The Jury will be made up of nine members.
These will be five Jordanians and four non-Jordanians. These will be people working in creative industries with expertise in art, media research, journalism and related fields. Not one single member will be an employee or a partner in an advertising agency participating in the Jordan Advertising Awards.
Mr. Walid Azzi, Publisher of ArabAd, will be a non-Jordanian member of the jury and the Jury’s Chairman.
Every member of the Jury will evaluate every entry aided by a copy of the First Sheet of the Entry Form. Scores will be provided for that entry based on:
    Creativity of the concept
    Marketing strategy employed
    Quality of execution
    Overall personal assessment

Each of these attributes is given a percentage, for a total score of 100%. Judging will be secret. Every juror will fill his/her score sheet in complete confidentiality and sign the form for every entry judged.
The chairperson is to check the judging forms before collection. Then, the scores will be entered into a computer for total score calculation.
A minimum total of percentage points will be necessary for an entry to be eligible for an award. The top three scoring entries, which meet this condition, will receive Gold,
Silver and Bronze awards respectively.
If two or more winning entries receive the same number of points, the jury has to re-judge the respective entries or nominate both entries for awards.
Only the chairperson will have access to the final scores. The results will be kept completely confidential until the Awards ceremony.

 

General Terms regarding categories:
The organizers, ArabAd & MediaScope, retain the right to cancel existing categories or open new categories.

Categories with less than the minimum number of entries required will be cancelled. The entries and the sums paid for them will be returned to the participating agencies.
Categories with a very large number of entries may be split up into two or three separate categories each with its own Gold, Silver and Bronze awards. This occurs only if the nature of the category allows a split.
