The criteria for the product judging at ISPO Award are:
- Innovation and trend character
- Purpose & target group
- Material selection - cost/ composition or, in the case of services: concept/ procedure of the service
- Design - appearance
- Price-performance ratio
- Weight/ pack size/ ratio/ handling or, for services: Handling/ accessibility/ effort required for use
- Quality of workmanship/ process/ procedure
- Functionality/ usability
The criteria printed in bold are considered particularly important and are therefore weighted twice.
The products will be rated based on the following scoring system. For each criteria maximum of 5 or 10 points can be reached:
1 = insufficient
2 = poor
3 = satisfactory
4 = good
5 = very good
max. 360 Points for a product ( 6x5 & 3x10 per Juror)
Special & separated sustainability judging – points counted on top (only for brands who submitted the additional sustainability questionnaire).
