LISTSERV Choice Awards 2012: Rules
Jury Process and Decision
Like previous years, the public will be able to vote for their favorite lists and to keep tabs on how each list is doing in the polls. The voting consists of individual monthly contests, and the counters will be reset at the beginning of each month. The polls will open April 1, 2012, and close August 31, 2012.
In any given month, the nominated list that receives the highest number of votes and has not already qualified as a finalist will become that month's finalist. Five different finalists will be selected, one for each month of voting: April, May, June, July and August. A list may receive the highest actual number of votes in more than one month, but all five finalists will be given equal jury consideration for the grand prize award.
After the monthly voting closes for each month, L-Soft will tabulate the votes and announce the monthly winner that has advanced as a finalist. The L-Soft jury and CEO Eric Thomas will select the grand prize winner from the five finalists. The decision of the jury is final.
Stay tuned to L-Soft's LISTSERV at Work newsletter as we report about the progress of the voting until the end of 2012 when we announce the grand prize winner.
