CICLOPE Asia’s judging process consists of two rounds. The first one is undertaken by the Executive Jury together with the Grand Jury, who watch and rank the entries on CICLOPE’s online platform. The 5 (five) best-ranked entries in each category will be considered finalists. In the second round of judging, the Executive Jury personally discusses the finalist pieces on a Zoom meeting and awards the one best work in each category. In a video conference call, the Executive Jury can also award one Grand Prix for the best work of the year in the competition.

The entries selected by the Executive Jury as the best in their categories and the Grand Prix will automatically become finalists at the global award show, CICLOPE Festival, on the corresponding category.

We'll send an email to the person who has submitted the work letting him/her know the big news. Winners will be publicly announced during the online Awards Ceremony, on August 15th.

Trophies will be sent by courier the week after the winner’s announcement.
