Here at DRiNK and Thirsty Work Productions, we take a lot of pride in DMBA – and the lengthy, honest and meticulous judging process that goes on each year to determine the winners of our 22 awards. For the sake of transparency, we want to share exactly how that process works and everything that goes on behind the scenes of our annual awards.
Here are your questions answered.

· First thing’s first: who decides the winners?

For China awards, winners are decided by a panel of nearly 200 influencing industry professionals across Mainland China.

For Asia and international awards, winners are decided by a separate panel of over 200 industry professionals across the region.

For specialty awards – Entrepreneurship Award and Founders Award – the winners are decided in house, with input from a committee of past winners.

· Who’s on the judging panels?

Judges are a diverse collection of people who are well-traveled, well-educated and well-informed when it comes to the China and/or Asia bar industry. This means bartenders, bar owners, brand ambassadors and managers, regional media, KOLs, distributors and the like.

· Can you tell us the names of the judges?

In order to maintain the most fair and honest process possible, we do not release the names of the members of the panel. Judges are explicitly asked to maintain their anonymity.

· Can judges discuss their votes with other people?

No. Judges cannot confer with any other members of industry and are asked to keep their votes private. If any judge’s votes are found to be influenced by outside parties, their votes are disqualified.

· Can judges vote for themselves or their own venues?

No. Judges are not allowed to vote for themselves, the brands they work for directly, or the venues they own or are employed by.

· How do you make sure people don’t do it anyway?

All members of the panel are given a unique code to access the DMBA voting system. Each code can only be used once, so that votes cannot be tampered with. This unique code also allows us to check every voter’s submissions, which are reviewed by a member of our team to ensure the votes are valid.

· How do the judges make their decisions?

After the public nominations process, the judges are given a list of the Top 20 nominees from each award category. From these lists, judges may select up to four nominees for each category.

· What are the rules for voting?

All voters must have visited the venues they are voting for in the past year, and are asked only to vote in categories for which they feel they are expertly qualified to judge.

· What happens next?

Votes are tallied by way of a points system, with each vote representing a certain number of points. Once all judges have submitted their votes, the points are tallied for each category to determine the Top 10 nominees, followed by the Final 4. The party who receives the highest number of points in each category is the winner.

· Do all votes carry the same weight?

About 25 per cent of judges on the panel are categorised as expert panelists. The votes from these select experts have a slightly higher point value than those of the other 75 per cent of judges. However, the expert panelists do not know that their votes carry more weight – only the DRiNK internal team knows who they are.

· Does DRiNK have a say in the winners?

A few members of the DRiNK/ TWP team are on the judging panel, and are subject to the same rules as all other judges. Moreover, they must submit their votes by the same deadline, and therefore cannot use their votes to change the outcome of any award. As mentioned, the Founders Award and Entrepreneurship Award are decided by our team.

· Can brands, people or venues pay to receive an award?

Absolutely not – all awards are given based on merit through the process outlined above.

· How about sponsors?

We love our sponsors! However, they are not eligible to receive an award for the category they sponsor.

· Can winners from past years win the same award again?

Winners from the previous award year are not eligible to win the same awards. However, they are still eligible for other categories.
