The team reviews all submissions and filters out any incomplete forms, sales pitches or entries that are not relevant to the public sector. The remaining submissions are then assessed based on their relevance to create a long-list for the jury.
2. Jury Evaluation
The jury assesses the long-listed submissions across three categories – Creative Bureaucracy Factor, Relevance & Impact, Transferability (see below). In the final assessment elements such as the project’s geography of impact, the project status and the topic(s) covered are also considered to ensure a balanced programme.
3. Digital Kick-Off Day Selection
Entries selected by the jury are offered a programme slot at our Digital Kick-Off Day on 23 March 2023. The entry should be pre-recorded and 5-10 minutes in length. All submissions are also invited to get involved in our growing set of community activities.
4. Festival Selection
Based on a combined score system from the jury voting and a further community voting, three sessions per language (German and English) will also be offered a live slot at the Festival on 15 June 2023 in Berlin. You can find the winners of 2022 in this article.
