Nomination Period, Screening, & Video Submission

After the nomination period, the screening committee will deliberate and choose the following finalists who will proceed to the next phase: 10 Individuals, 5 Organizations, 5 Project of the Year.

Additional Requirement: Once qualified as a finalist, they are required to submit a video to highlight their story and their efforts in the HIV Advocacy. Maximum of 5 mins and minimum of 3 minutes for the video.

Online Votes

Part of the criteria is the online vote. The objective of this is for us to reach more to our key-affected population and to the Philippines, all the effort and story that our volunteers, heroes, and finalists had put into the HIV Advocacy.

The online vote will run for at least ten days (subject to change by the committee).

Judging and Awarding

The pool of judges represented by different sectors from all parts of the spectrum will be judging the finalist based on the determined criteria. In case of tie, the finalist with the highest score from the head judge will be the winner.

All finalists will be invited together with their plus 1 during the Love Gala event on November 30, where the awarding will then happen.
