Following the events, awardees will be invited to join their panel of judges, to participate in the judging of future award competitions.

Widening networks
Finalists have the opportunity to connect with fellow high-calibre and successful alumni as well as influential guests at their award ceremony, extending and building their professional networks and contacts.

Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).

Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
