Voting open from 13-27 October 2014

How the Voting works

Submissions for the Pitch will be received between 1 July and 12:00 noon BST on 29 September 2014. The Pitches to go forward in competition will be selected by an internal panel at the Pitch and displayed on the website for voting by the public on 13 October. This voting will select the top 20 pitches to be shortlisted for our industry panel of judges. The top 5 in the public vote will be automatically shortlisted, along with the top 5 from the internal panel. The remaining 10 places will be decided by a combined internal and public vote.

How the Public’s vote will work

Each person voting will have to be aged 15 or over, and can vote for as many pitches as they wish. Each vote will amount to one point. The points will be totalled for each pitch. The top 5 pitches will be considered those obtaining the highest number of points in the public vote. In voting for each pitch please cast your vote with reference to the judging criteria.

The Split

The shortlist to be presented to the judges will comprise the top 5 from the public vote and the top 5 from the internal panel. The remaining places will be decided by the combined voting scores. The percentage weight of the vote for selecting the remainder of the shortlist will be split as follows:

  • Internal panel 50%
  • Public 50%

Tie-Break

If there is a tie-break for the twentieth place for the shortlist, the internal panel shall, at their absolute discretion, decide which pitch shall go through to the shortlist.

How the Judges’ vote will work

The judges will select their favourite pitches from the shortlist to go to the finals at Pinewood by ranking them from 1 to 20 (with one being their absolute favourite).

Points will be allocated to each pitch that is ranked by the judges, as shown in the table to the right.

The votes cast by the Judges will be combined, and the 10 finalists will be those receiving the 10 highest numbers of votes.
