Audience Prize - About

The Audience Prize is about how artists communicate with the audience during a competition. We don't want to know who you think the adjudicator or jury will select: We want to know who spoke to you from the stage.

Audience Prize is a web-based voting system for collecting rankings of voter preferences. Based on the voters' rankings, we determine what is known as a Condorcet winner.

This provides a more accurate measure of the audience preference than single vote systems, avoiding the well know problems with those first-past-the-post type elections. For the interested reader, a good account of Condorcet voting is given by the folks at Cornell University on their Condorcet Internet Voting Site.

If you would like to know more, or would like your competition to appear here, please contact Matt.
