The Global Talent Young India Award 2018 will be judged by a six-member panel. The panel chair is responsible for maintaining the integrity of the process.

Manasi Subramaniam, Penguin Random House
Major General (retd) Neeraj Bali, educationist and business leader
K Hariharan, filmmaker, Professor at Ashoka University
Samantha Leahy-Harland, Bournemouth University

The panel will follow a three-step process to select the winners.
Stage 1: Desk review
The first stage involves a review of all entries to ensure that they meet the submission requirements of the award. Entries which fall short of the requirements specified in the call are rejected.
Stage 2: Sub-committee review
In the second stage, submissions are assigned to a sub-committee of judges.This stage involves an in-depth evaluation of all entries. The sub-committee then selects the best entries to proceed to the final stage.
Stage 3: Full panel review
In this stage, the full panel of judges reviews the shortlisted submissions put forward by the sub-committee. After a careful assessment of the shortlisted entries, the full panel decides on the winner and honourable mentions.
Judging criteria and process
Entries will be assessed on the basis of the concept, and the creativity demonstrated in the poster. Judges work independently, without consulting each other. Entries are ranked by each judge in Stage 2, and a shortlist arrived at based on their rankings. The same process is followed in the final stage to decide the winners, runners-up and honourable mentions. Should there be a tie at any stage, the chair’s vote will be used to break the tie.
The winner, runners-up and honourable mentions will be announced on 16 February at the British Council, New Delhi, during the closing ceremony of Bournemouth University’s Festival of Learning India 2018.
