Nomination and Shortlisting Process
The public will be able to nominate candidates for each category. Thereafter the BISCA team will shortlist three candidates for each, after which the judging panel will select and vote for one successful awardee for each category. This will be done by scoring points for each of the following scales:
- 10 points for the nominee’s activities carried out in that category
- 10 points for the nominee’s contributions and output in the society
- 10 points for the nominee’s impact and influence on the British society as a whole
- 10 points for the nominee’s originality, distinctiveness and innovative methods employed to enhance and promote Islam & British values
- 10 points for the nominee’s long term impact, influence and sustainable benefit to the British society
The maximum score is 50 points for each category. The judging panel will make the ultimate decision in choosing the awardee for each category. One of the criteria of the BISCA shortlisting team will be to look at the number of nominations received for each candidate for the award categories through the website.
After nominations have been closed the public will be able to view their nominations for the various categories on the website.
The successful candidates will be presented with their awards and appreciation at the BISCA Awards Ceremony 2016 on Saturday 15th October in London.
