Originality: Is the project a new piece of work? Is it original and distinctive?

The Jury, Voting Process and Awards Ceremony

The prize is awarded following a rigorous and transparent assessment process:
• All submissions are reviewed by an international Advisory Panel and a longlist of 20 applicants established.
• An International Jury of leading practitioners and scholars from relevant fields define a shortlist of three outstanding projects.
• The winner is decided through an open vote by members of the FutureEverything Community – FutureEverything’s world wide community of past festival participants, speakers and delegates.
• The Award is presented at an Awards Ceremony – a Gala event staged during the FutureEverything festival, also featuring presentations of the winner and runners up, and a world class curated programme of performance and presentations.

Benefits of the Award:
• The winners receive the new FutureEverything Trophy, a £10,000 cash prize, and the opportunity to present their project at the FutureEverything festival and within the FutureEverything catalogue and communications.
• The award promotes world-class innovation and introduce the leading practitioners to stakeholders and the wider public, helping to promote and foster innovation culture in the UK and around the world. There are further opportunities throughout the year for the holder of the Award.

The Award Ceremony and Exhibition:
The Award Gala will take place during the FutureEverything Festival, 11-14 May 2011 in Manchester, UK.
