VOTING AND NOMINATING

ALL VOTES AND NOMINATIONS MUST HAVE BEEN SHOWN ON AN ASIAN TELEVISION CHANNEL BROADCASTING IN THE UK BETWEEN 01ST AUGUST 2017 AND 31ST JULY 2018.

First round nomination – the 11 categories will each allow for the input of one nominee. The top entries with the most nominations will progress through to the voting stage.

Voting categories will contain a selection of nominees. You may only vote for one nominee in each category.

IN EACH OF THE VOTING CATEGORIES, YOU MAY VOTE ONLY ONCE. IF YOU EXCEED THESE LIMITS YOUR VOTE MAY NOT BE COUNTED BUT YOU MAY STILL BE CHARGED WHERE APPLICABLE. FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, CAPPING LIMITS MAY APPLY TO EACH INDIVIDUAL ROUND OF VOTING AND VIEWERS MAY NOMINATE ONCE IN EACH CATEGORY DURING THE FIRST ROUND OF NOMINATIONS AND ONCE IN EACH CATEGORY DURING THE SECOND ROUND OF VOTING.

The external on-line polling software allows multiple voting by a single Internet Protocol (IP) address. Internet Protocol (IP) addresses can represent a single computer or an entire office network that connects through the same Internet service.

If our poll did not allow multiple nominations/votes from a single IP address, then only one member of a family of five or one employee from an office of dozens would be able to nominate/vote. The rest would be denied access to the poll. Our polling software allows multiple voting and relies on the honour system to keep things fair. Unfortunately, not everyone plays fair. Once all votes are collected our judging panel will be analysing the data and may remove certain submissions if deemed to be repetitive votes from the same user on a certain IP Address.

VOTING RESULTS:
The voting results will represent the accumulated votes achieved in the second round voting stage only. Votes from the general public will account to 80% of the total vote and the other 20% of the votes will be determined by a judging panel of experienced individuals with expertise within the respective fields. In the event of a tie, each of the nominees which receive the joint highest number of votes will share the award for the relevant category.

EACH OF OUR PROCESSES WILL BE AUDITED BY AN EXTERNAL INDEPENDENT BODY TO CONFIRM THE PROCEDURE USED TO DETERMINE WINNERS IS GOOD AND FAIR.
