Judging Process


The Nigerian Models Achievers Award Winners, Nominees and Official Finalists are selected by a judging panel consisting of a consortium of leading industry experts, agency owners, advertising executives, top photographers, and other industry professionals from the best work entered through our official Call for Entries. Evaluated against a number of criteria, the entries undergo a rigorous process to be on the four finalist at each category for the coveted Nigerian Models Achievers Award.

How Work Is Judged


Round 1 Judging :

From the many hundreds of entries submitted during the Call for Entries, our Official Jury independently inspects each entry and rates them based on their respective judging criteria. Each entry is evaluated by multiple judges. The entries that fare best through this process are included on category specific shortlists and further evaluated by the Executive Members of the Official Jury. Establish Winners, Nominees and Finalists.


Final Round Judging :

Executive Members of our Official Jury with category specific expertise will further evaluate the shortlisted entries based on the appropriate criteria, and vote to determine Nigerian Models Achievers Award Official Finalists, Nominees and through public votes.


Emergence of Winners :

In the event of a tie, an Executive of the Nigerian Models Achievers Awards casts the tie-breaking vote. Executive Members may not vote in any category in which they have a conflict of interest. For each of the categories, the Official Jury will select two winners for Honor, which will all win the coveted Nigerian Models Achievers Award Hall of Fame. Additionally, the online community, through a public vote, will also make comments in each category. We reserve the right to honor less than four Nominees or Official Finalists in any category should the quality of work not meet standards set by the judging criteria.


Disclosure :

Because we not only acknowledge excellence, but we associate with it, the potential for conflicts of interest often arises. We take these conflicts very seriously. We do everything in our power to minimize occurrences of conflicts while ensuring that the best work is recognized. The Nigerian Models Achievers Awards team selects a diverse body of judges who we feel are objective, respected and knowledgeable in their categories. Judges may not vote for any entry with which they have a conflict of interest; such situations are closely monitored, depending on both the personal integrity of the judges and various sources of knowledge to police such activity.
