The ProZ.com community choice awards started in 2013 as a way for the ProZ.com community to publicly recognize language professionals who are active, influential or otherwise outstanding in various media throughout the industry. Nominations, voting, and winners are determined entirely by the ProZ.com community.
Here is how it works:
The awards have a simple structure of nominations, voting, and announcement of winners.
Members of the ProZ.com community are asked to submit their nominations in various categories.
Nominees who receive a certain number of nominations move to the voting stage.
Winners are determined purely through numbers of votes cast by the ProZ.com community.
