ENTRY/REGISTRATION COSTS
JOB BOARDS: It's FREE to participate for job boards. There's no registration fee.

However all finalists (selected after voting by clients) will need to pay an administration fee of $250. All finalists are required to to provide additional information/data and answer questions raised by the judging panel. If for any reason a finalist is unable or unwilling to pay an administration fee, the next job board securing the highest clients’ vote will move up the ladder.

EMPLOYERS/RECRUITERS: There is a registration fee of $190 for the following categories (No public vote):
- Best Innovation of the Year
- Best Recruitment Website (Recruiters)

REGISTERING IN MULTIPLE CATEGORIES
Technically, job boards are allowed to nominate themselves in multiple categories. Unless you have two distinct products, it is better to choose only one category, otherwise votes will be spead across both categories. Destination Talent reserves the right to dispute or reject a category chosen by a registrant. Contact us if you need assistance in figuring which category you should nominate.

DEFINITION OF A JOB BOARD
Our definition of a job board - A 'job board’ is primarily an online destination, operated by a legal entity, where job opportunities are listed, with the aim to connect job seekers and those who seeks them.

Job sites (with a unique domain name) advertising similar jobs from another site operated/owned by the same entity/owner do not qualify. E.g. A job board owner cannot enter two different job boards listing the same content. At least 60% of listed jobs on a site needs to be unique. Excluded from this rule are aggregators and job boards operated by news portal.

I MISSED THE NOMINATION DATE, CAN I STILL PARTICIPATE?
Yes. The only issue is others who registered early will have a head start. Voting by the public will start from 15 Nov and ends on 15 Jan. Technically you can nominate your job board within this period, but by then voting process will be be well underway.

WHY NO JUDGES FROM NEW ZEALAND?
We will release new information regarding this shortly. There will be judges from NZ.

HOW ARE FINALISTS SELECTED?
Clients, advertisers and the voting public will decide who makes the finals. Using an online voting tool (see a SAMPLE ) the public will vote, rate and provide feedback for their favourite job board. Besides using a grading tool, a Net Promoter satisfaction score will be used to rate job boards. Points from the survey will be tallied and five finalists in each category will be selected.

All finalists will be profiled in the Job Board Report

CAN JOB SEEKERS VOTE?
The Job Board Award is designed for users (clients) to provide feedback to job boards. True, a client can also be a job seeker but the Job Board Awards is meant for advertisers to rate the performance of job boards.

WHO ARE THE JUDGES, AND WHAT's THEIR ROLE?
All judges are carefully chosen to represent a wide range of experience, knowledge and perspective. Most of the judges are involved in either running, using or advising job boards. Job board technology providers, consultants, recruiters, recruitment trainers, former job board owners, employment branding experts and HR experts are represented in the panel.

Judges are carefully chosen to avoid conflict of interests. In the case a judge have an interests or stake in any of the finalists he/she will be barred from voting in the category.

WHAT WILL THE JUDGES MEASURE?
All finalists are required to provide additional information about their company. A separate form will be mailed to all finalists. The judges will look at a variety of criteria not covered by clients in the voting stage. This may include, amongst other things, site traffic, site usability, technology, brand recognition and branding, range and breadth of services/products etc. Vote/feedback by judges will account for 40% of the total points to select a winner.

REPORT & FEEDBACK
A feedback report, an analysis of what voters have to say, will be available for all participating job boards. Those who are not shortlisted for the finals will have to buy it at a cost of $190. Feedback report is available to all finalists for free.
