Voting methods include (but are not limited to): Corporate e-mail, WhatsApp chat, "Text to Vote". The voting process is confidential for the public while nominees can view the names, phone numbers and emails of their voters. All votes are verified to ensure that no abuse of the voting platform can occur.
Each vote is cast via an online form where our visitors vote for nominees. You can vote only once and only the first submission per email address or phone number will be counted. The voting period remains open from September 1 to November 30.
To protect the regularity of the Award from external influences, we do not accept sponsorships. Therefore, the costs of maintaining the platform, support, promotion during the year and awards are financed by nominees who purchase Voting credit.
A vote can only be counted if the nominee has enough credits in his or her account. If the nominee does not have enough credits to accept new votes, information about this will be visible on the nominee's public profile. Once a nominee adds credits to their nomination, all "on pending" votes will be counted within 24 hours.
The terms "Winner" refer to the TWCR nominee who won one of the first three places at the end of the season.
If you become a Winner, you agree to the following rules:
- You cannot request deletion of the nomination, account and removal of data after the end of the season.
- You cannot participate again as a nominee next season, but you can compete again after two years. This means that if you won the 2020 season, you can join again in 2022. This rule is limited to first-ranked only.
