The International Elevate Award winner will be voted by an International Jury Community, which congregates in two online voting sessions. The more than 85 jury members are all former guests of the Elevate festival, from the years 2005 to 2011. Every year the Jury Community should grow in size by inviting new guests of the Elevate Festival.

The Jury Community first votes on the top five nominees and then in the second session on the winning project out of the top five.

Speakers of the jury will also be present at the Elevate Awards Show in Graz on October 28th.
