Rules

The Best of Brazil Award in the World is for Brazilians residing abroad. Brazilians residing in Brazil can vote and nominate but cannot compete for the award. We update the rules periodically to reflect necessary changes during the nomination and voting period:

  1. Each email address can only vote for a nominee once.

  2. Each person can vote for multiple nominees.

  3. Nominations will be open for 3 months from June 5th to September 5th.

  4. Nominations close September 5th.

  5. Voting will still be permitted up until September the 9th.

  6. If there are any categories with only one nominee, the category will not be taken to the final with the judges and we will instead place the candidate in another category that is equivalent to his/her profile.

  7. The rules will be expanded on during the event schedule (note the rules don't change they are simply expanded upon).

  8. Supporters, partners, sponsors and jurors cannot vote for any of the nominees.

  12. The judges vote for each finalised based on their biography alone. The jury does not receive the finalist's first or last name so that the vote is totally impartial.

The nominees cannot have a criminal record, nor must they have been found guilty of any  crime nor be in a judicial process that is in the public domain (public domain means that the process may have published in newspapers or magazines). Private processes that do not concern the public are not to be considered.

  16. All winners are selected for the award by combining the votes of the audience to reach the final and by the votes of the judges on their biographies.

  17. in the final week of the votes, we check if the votes are real or if some kind of fraud was used. If 5 or more emails are verified as from robots, or there are no candidates and immediately disqualified;

  18. the most voted in each category automatically gets one more vote when it goes to the judges;

  19. if there is a tie between the judges, the nominee with the highest popular vote is the winner;

  20. We will disqualify candidates with less than 10 votes.  If you have less than 10 votes, you will not be one of the finalists .;

  21. If a category only has candidates with less than 10 votes, the category will be voided and none of the nominees will be invited to participate in the awards ceremony at Kensington Palace in London.
