Firms and companies are first pre-selected by the market research department of Leaders League in conjunction with the recommendations provided by an Advisory Board composed of our most trusted Jury members. Other references such as International professional guides are used to enhance this selection.


Each pre-selected firm is asked to fill out an application form in order to compete for the Gold Award in their category. 


The winners of each category are determined by a panel of outstanding Jury Members. The judging process is extremely rigorous, confidential and based not only on their experience and market knowledge, but also on the information provided by nominees in the application forms submitted.
