Criteria & Adjudication
An independent judging panel representing a broad cross-section of the Russian CFO and financial community and impartial experts in the industry will assess nominations and decide the recipients of all awards.
Our distinguished panel will be asked to assess the candidates in each field objectively and, to attach most importance to meritorious activity in the last year (defined as 2012-13, with particular emphasis on the 12-month period up to April 2013).
Specific criteria for adjudicating the awards are not established by the organisers, and may differ broadly from award to award. Suggested criteria may include, but are not limited to: business success, quality, growth, exemplary initiative, financial results, share price, investment, integrity, commercial acumen, operational performance, employment, innovation, good corporate governance and transparency, or any other criteria the panel individually or collectively wishes to take into consideration, depending on the award category.
The winners will be decided by the panel alone. Exceptionally Adam Smith Conferences has the right to directly nominate the winner of any award only if (i) for extraordinary reasons the panel has been unable to come to a unanimous decision, or (ii) has declined to select a winner in one or more of the categories.
The judges’ deliberations and selections, to be decided democratically, are at their own discretion and the panel’s decisions are final.
