Awarding the Winners, Nominees and Most Viral
Winners

In each of the 4 categories, there is only one chance to win the grand prize of "The World Most Stylish." Fashion Sponge employees and guest judges with category specific expertise will further evaluate the shortlisted entries based on the online votes and eventually cast ballots to determine Nominees and Winners. In the event of a tie, the Nominees who engaged the most most and had the most shared looks will be selected.

Nominees

Fashion Sponge will acknowledge the four (4) entrants in each of the 4 categories with the highest scores following the grand prize winner. These sixteen (16) entrants will be recognized as Nominees. For more information regarding Nominees, see The Nominee Resource Center.


Most Viral

Due to the fact that only one (1) grand prize winner, can be chosen for each category, we will be giving a prize to the entrants that are worthy of recognition for having the most shared looks in their category. Three entrants from each category will win one of the three prizes. Prizes will be awarded to the entrants in the order of most shared looks. Grand prize winners are not eligible to win.

How looks are Judged


From all of the entries submitted during the Call for Entries, employees of Fashion Sponge will independently inspect each entry and rate them based on their respective judging criteria. The twenty five (25) entries from each category that best through this process are included on category specific shortlists and are further evaluated by the online community. Through a public vote we will select a winner from the Nominees in each category.


Description of Fashion Sponge Employees and Guest Judges

Employees of Fashion Sponge and guest judges are industry experts. As such, they have demonstrable expertise in the categories in which they review. In order to be accepted to be a judge, all judges must first submit an application. After their application is reviewed and accepted, and they are verified as experts and leaders in their peer groups, judges are given different entries for review in the respective categories of their expertise. They are barred from judging any entry with which they have a conflict of interest, or any personal or professional affiliation. Fashion Sponge inspects the work of each judge for fairness and accuracy, and verifies Judges' qualifications and level of expertise for judging.

Creativity

Most stylish people employ a superior level of creativity. Judging the creativity of an entry focuses on a handful of elements including style, originality, innovation and the unique nature of the underlying idea. It includes a smartly selected color palette, great garment and accessory coordination and the relevant use of anything that communicates great styling. Great style can be characterized as engaging and relevant, with resonance and a point of view. It may be informative, functional, inspirational or technically mind-blowing, but overall it always leaves you wanting more from who ever is wearing it.
