How your submission scores with the jury of the PSI Sustainability Awards

  1. Complete company disclosures.
  2. Complete certificates: here it is important that you submit all certificates related to the company (and to the product in the case of product submissions). Each certificate, seal and standard is evaluated by the system behind the submission platform in an elaborate algorithm and objectively assigned points. These certificates, seals and standards thus form the basis for your overall score. Missing, incorrect, expired or blackened certificates cannot be included in the evaluation by the jury. Therefore, the completeness of all documents and their correctness is essential for a PSI Sustainability Award.
  3. Extensive and fact-based descriptions of the submitted campaigns, products and the company help the jury to obtain a substantive overall impression.
  4. Extensive and meaningful image documentation helps the jury understand the submission during the digital evaluation. In the system, it is possible to upload videos in addition to photos. Make use of this possibility! The jury considers and evaluates all components of a submission.
  5. For products and campaigns, real, literally “tangible” samples are essential. These are sifted through in parallel by our team, catalogued and presented to the jury in the digital jury kickoff session. Each product and campaign is carefully considered again here. Each jury member has access to the submissions throughout the entire evaluation phase and can view them online at any time. In the case of campaigns, it is also important to illuminate the story behind them for the jury – keyword storytelling. Without the knowledge behind the product or its integration into a campaign or at the POS, the jury cannot evaluate products that have been taken out of context, or can only evaluate them inadequately.

Basically, the following principle always applies to all submissions: submit documents about your company, your product or your campaign that are of such sufficient quality that a neutral third party is just as enthusiastic about your submission as you are. Only then can the best submissions win in the end. If you have any questions about the submission or the extent, we will be happy to help and advise you at any time.
