Ever wonder how nominee selection and voting works for Star Awards?
Here's what you need to know!
Those who won an award for a specific category the previous year are not eligible to be nominated for that same category the following year, however they can be nominated for other categories if applicable.
Each company can submit one nomination ballot for first round of voting.
Nominees must be in the Houston Market.
TV, Radio, Out of Home and Print companies will receive 20 votes in addition to their membership.
If there is no membership, then they will just receive 20 votes.
Agencies receive 10 votes in addition to their membership.
If there is no membership, they will just receive 10 votes.
MAH Members receive the number of votes outlined in their membership, in addition to their given votes.
Example: If KHOU has a 5 person membership, they will receive 25 votes (5 for their membership, 20 for being a TV station)
Individual members are eligible to vote.
First round of voting—the top three or four nominees for each round will move on to the final round of voting.
For categories, like MAH Rising Star and Market Rock Star or any category where there is a close tie, four will move on to the final round of voting.
Each nominee for the final round of voting will be sent an essay to complete, as part of their overall score.
Essays will be sent to 10 out-of-market judges who will submit their ballots to the CPA.
All essay scores and voting scores will be submitted to a CPA to tabulate the final winner for each category.
Scoring is 55% voting and 45% essay for final scores.
