There are several opportunities to earn awards in Open Projects on jovoto. Ideas submitted are eligible for awards chosen by the client and/or project jury, and the creative community. As we don’t only reward great ideas, but a supportive community, you can also earn a Collaboration Award for example.
Besides the monetary awards, there are sometimes "money-can’t-buy awards" to be earned - like opportunities to present your idea to the client, highlighting you on our blog and on our & the client's social media channel etc.
Community Awards are determined based on the community's ratings - you, the community, decide.
Community Awards: In Open Projects you have the opportunity to be a Community Award winner.
The total amount of Community Award money is distributed among the project’s top-ranked ideas. The number of awards varies from project to project but is always determined by the ratings of your fellow community members.
Client Awards are determined by the client or a jury of client representatives and external experts. These individuals are listed on the brief page.
Client Choice Award: This award is given to the submission that the client licenses at the end of a project. It generally takes longer to determine this award because clients take their decisions seriously and sometimes have to go through internal voting processes. Clients have an exclusivity period (usually 3-6 months) in which they have time to decide.
Client Shortlist Award: These awards are offered to one or more submissions that did not receive a license, but are recognized by the client.
Jury Award: A Jury Award is determined by the project jury. The jury, as well as the awards, vary from project to project and details are specified in the briefing.
Halftime Award: After the midpoint of the project (Halftime), the client reviews ideas submitted before the Halftime Deadline. Of these ideas, they award one or more submissions with a Halftime Award. This award is announced beneath the brief a day or two after the Halftime Deadline.
In some projects we also have a 'money can't buy' awards such as Creative spotlight on our blog, workshops & webinars with our clients and a future collaboration with our partners.
