Can our joint-venture companies submit their entries separately? If so, can parent companies submit an entry on behalf of the JVs?

Joint ventures merged and/or acquired companies, and subsidiaries can submit their entries separately if they have a separate brand presence from the parent company, and their HR and inclusion and diversity initiatives

In what instance may an award entry be disqualified?

Awards entries will be automatically disqualified due to the following reasons:

  • Failure to provide mandatory documents with your submission
  • Incorrect or falsified information is submitted
  • PowerPoint presentation submitted is longer than 10 slides

What criteria are used to evaluate the awards entries?

All awards categories have individual criteria. Detailed information on evaluation criteria is available on the website and in the Global Equality in Energy Awards brochure.

How are the entries evaluated and scored?

Entries are evaluated and scored on the quality of the submission received. There is a rigorous evaluation process where the Awards Jury – comprising of industry leaders – review and grade each entry received through an online portal.

Scores from the online review are then tabulated and the top six entries in each category will be shortlisted for a face-to-face interview with jury members in the Awards Jury Meeting scheduled to take place on  Sunday 27 November 2022.

Following the face-to-face interviews, four finalists will be shortlisted in each category. Finalists will be announced and informed after the Jury meeting. Winners will be kept confidential and announced only during the Awards Ceremony. The Jury’s decision is final and binding.

What format is suitable for the uploaded material?

The following formats are acceptable when uploading an attachment as a supporting evidence

  • For texts: pdf
  • For images: jpg/jpeg, png, tiff
  • For videos/movies: any video format (mp4, mov, flv, avi). The video must be highest possible quality, and must be under 4 minutes. This can also be a link to a website where the video can be seen (example: YouTube). Maximum video size should be 200 MB
  • For presentations: PDF or PPT (maximum 10 slides)

Why is there a dateline on the supporting evidence? Why can I not submit evidence from three years ago?

The Global Equality in Energy Awards are annual, and therefore, recognise individual and organisational achievements on an annual basis. However, due to industry disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2023 edition of the Awards will recognise submitted information that focuses upon achievements within the last two years (between 2020-2022).

I forgot to include an attachment to my entry, what should I do?

If you have submitted an entry and forgot to include an attachment or would like to request some minor edits, please email us at egyps.awards@dmgevents.com with the request. If you would like to make a major edit and/or amend more than 50% of the entry, please resubmit a new entry. We will automatically delete the old one.

When are the winners and highly commended announced?

The winners and highly commended are kept confidential and are only announced at the Awards Ceremony that will take place on Wednesday 15 February at the Egypt Petroleum Show (EGYPS).

If I have been invited for a face-to-face interview with the Awards Jury or have been shortlisted as a finalist, will the organisers cover my travel and accommodation expenses?

No, Awards entrants are responsible for their travel or accommodation expenses. If an entrant has been invited for a face-to-face interview and is unable to travel, the organiser will try to arrange a virtual video conference instead.

Can my company sponsor an award category?

Yes, various sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information, please contact egyps.sales@dmgevents.com
