What is required of an assessor?
The entry form is only seven questions and the answers are all quite short because we’re looking for the potential of an idea. All applications are made online through Submittable, which is also the platform used to complete assessments.
You will make a rating out of five for each of the four judging criteria. There is scoring guidance for you to follow inSubmittable, which suggests the attributes of a low scoring to a high scoring entry. You will also need to leave a short comment (up to 150 words) to justify your scores.
- Each assessor will be asked to make a maximum of 72 double-assessments (36 entries). Your exact workload will be confirmed on the application closing day (27th April).
- Based on previous experience, we estimate that in one day you should be able to dedicate an average of 6 hours of work for 20 assessments.
- The entries are quite short so the overall assessment work should not take longer than 3 or 4 days(maximum 5 days).
Remuneration will be made based on the number of assessments conducted, so you can expect a remuneration up to 1,000 € for your total workload. The final number of your allocated entries will be confirmed after Submission Deadline (27th April).
