How to vote?


What you need to know before voting

Who can vote?

Depending on the category, different voting criteria apply:

a) category of Best Presenter is a people´s choice award, therefore all employees of ERA Europe member companies can participate in the voting process.

b) Categories CSR and Business Personality of the Year are voted for by board members only.

c) All other categories: each member company has ONE vote PER category. If more than one vote is cast on behalf of the same company, the first chronological vote will be considered.

How do I vote?

You must register with your professional email on the emma-awards.com website before you can vote. After receiving the confirmation email, please proceed to Access your Account at the top right of the page.  Go to Nominations and select the category you are interested in and choose from the list of respective nominations. A member company must cast only ONE vote PER category, except to the Best Presenter of the Year, which is a people´s choice award, which means that all employees of ERA Europe member companies can participate in the voting process.

Please note that multiple votes in the same category are not taken into consideration. If there are more than 10 nominations per category, ERA Europe reserves the right to decide that each member company has the possibility to cast 3 votes (1st, 2nd or 3rd place) within that category.

Why do I need to register?

Your registration is important to ensure that the voting process is fair. It ensures that each user is only able to submit ONE vote PER category. This way we can stop any attempt to deliberately undermine, circumvent, or manipulate the legitimate operation of the voting process via repetitive votes by the same person.

Why can I only vote once per category?

In order to achieve a fair outcome and give all nominees an equal chance to win, you may only submit ONE vote PER category. Multiple votes cast by the same person will not be considered. Multiple email addresses of the same person are also not eligible.

When can I vote?

The voting takes place between 18th May and 30th May 2020. - Information to be updated for the 2021 event.
