2. Stage 2: Evaluation of applications according to the criteria for the category (for candidates who passed the first stage)

• conducted by the jury based on the application forms and on the meetings/phone interviews with the candidates. The evaluation is based on the established indicators / criteria for each category.

In the application form every candidate describes: his/her achievements (max. 3 standard pages) relevant to the particular category (concrete facts, concrete results, fields of personal satisfaction with the achieved results, opinions of managers/subordinates/colleagues) or the project which is the subject of the application (what the project is about, what kind of activities it includes, when it is developed and implemented, who the participants are, what the concrete results are).

The application forms of all the canidates who have passed successfully the first stage of evaluation and have reached the second one are uploaded on the website of the contest (personal data included in the application forms will be removed before that).

After reviewing the application forms of all the candidates, the jury initiates meetings or phone interviews with them. The aim of the meetings/phone interviews is to give the participants the opportunity to prove the facts they have described in the application form by presenting relevant information. The exact parameters of the meetings/phone interviews - format, date, duration, are determined by the jury and will be synchronized with the candidates in advance. At least 3 of the 7 jury members participate in every meeting/phone interview.

Conducting meetings/phone interviews is a mandatory element of the assessment procedure and in the process of arranging the dates for holding them the availability of both the jury members and the candidates are taken into account. If a candidate refuses to participate in a meeting/phone interview, his/her application drops out of the contest.
