Process & Metrics

Judges review and score all valid applications using the metrics below. A Selection Panel of regional leaders reviews the top scoring organizations (the Regional Finalists) and selects one Regional Winner in each IIC Award Category. Finally, all IIC Regional Winners must submit a three minute (maximum) video that explains their organization’s solution and impact. The Global Champion Committee will also use the video to consider all twenty Regional Winners from around the globe and select four Global Grand Prize Winners.
