In 2022, CICLOPE’s judging process will consist of two rounds. The first one is undertaken by the Executive Jury together with the Grand Jury, who watch and rank the entries on CICLOPE’s online platform. The 5 (five) best-ranked entries in each category will be considered finalists. In the second round of judging, the Executive Jury personally discusses the finalist pieces on a Zoom meeting and awards one Gold in each category. On a second conference call, the Executive Jury can also award one Grand Prix for the best work of the year.

The day of the announcement, we will get in touch with the winners to share the good news. Trophies will be sent by mail to the winners the following week.
