Rules

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

  1. Each email address can only be used once to vote for each nominee.

  2. Each person can vote for multiple nominees if they wish.

  3. Once you accept your nomination you will receive emails from High Profile Magazine about the award and the services it provides.

  4. Nominations for the European awards can be made from 10th of January till 17th of April 2022 at 8pm London UK time. Nominations for the USA awards can be made from January 10th to June 1st at 8pm New York USA time.

  5. Nominations close on the following dates:                                                                                    Europe: 07 of August 2022 at 20:01 (UK)                                                                                            USA: 1st of June 20:01 New York (USA)

    USA: Until 12th of June

  7. 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.

  8. Finalists will be announced:                                                                                                          Europe: 17th of August 2022 at 6pm London time through the magazine Instagram (@highprofilemagazine)                                                                                                                   USA: 16th of June 2022 at 6pm London time through the magazine Instagram (@highprofilemagazine)

  9. The rules will be expanded upon over the coming months. (note the rules don't change they are simply expanded upon).

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

  11. No relatives of the organizers can participate in the awards.

  12. The most voted in each category will be invited to participate in the in-person event in London. Rule 25 will state how many nominees from each category will be a finalist invited to the ceremony.

  13. The 5 most voted of each  category will be the finalists and your biographies of up to 500 characters will be sent to the judges, as shown on your profile screen, when you accepted to participate in the competition.

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

  15. 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).

  16. Private processes that do not concern the public are fine.

  17. We do not take into account personal issues between participants in the awards and we do not accept gossip or bad-mouthing from one participant about another.

  18. We do not accept bribes, allow gifts, travel, or any other kind of kickback to sway the final vote.

  19. All winners are selected for the award by combining the votes from the general public and the votes of the judges on their biographies.

  20. On the final week before voting closes we check for voting fraud. If a candidate has received 5 or more votes from fraudulent sources such as bots, or votes with a fake phone number, they will be disqualified.

  21. The person with the most votes per category automatically gets a bonus vote when going to the judges' stage.

  22. If there is a tie between the judges decision the nominee with the largest amount of votes is declared the winner.

  23. Candidates with less than 20 votes will be disqualified.
