Our judges are recruited worldwide, where we invite senior-level executives to join the jury panel. Other judges can apply to judge on our awards website. All our judges are highly reputable business professionals held in high regard. The judges are grouped into several panels to ensure there is an avenue for cross-checking and sharing of views to moderate discussions.
Individual criteria differ by category, but the emphasis is on the overall quality of the project, namely innovation, integrity, growth, etc. from the project, relative to the judges' experience and the claims in other submissions, as well as the quality of the narrative itself.
Judges score on a scale of 1-100, based on the below criteria according to each program:
The Titan Business Awards and International Awards Associate’s decision are final in its sole discretion and binding in relation to all matters relating to Competitions and may not be subjected to any discussions or correspondence.
How do we choose Titan Business Awards winners?
Submissions are judged at random without comparison to others in a category. Each project is evaluated on criteria determined by the requirements (see Judging Criteria). Individual are not compared to group in the same category.
To ensure high standards of high quality, a category may have multiple winners or no winners. Work is critiqued rated by consensus, with the panel of judges determining a rating on a scale of 100 points. Winners with a score between 85 and 100 points are Platinum Winners. Projects with a score between 60 and 84 points are Gold Winners.
One of the Highest score Platinum winners* for each main category will be selected as the Category Winner.
Projects receiving an average score under 60 do not receive an award.
Levels of winning and number of winning entries
There are THREE (3) levels of achievement in the competition:
The number of awards presented by TITAN Business Awards is determined by the number of submissions in a given category, the scoring range, and the number of tie scores.
How do I know if I’ve won an award?
All winners will be announced on May 20, 2021 via the TITAN Business Awards official page. All registered participants can then log in to see the winning works.

What do the winners receive?
Each year, the Titan Business Awards honors the best in business from around the globe, while you give us a glimpse into the future of the profession
Why must winners’ trophies be purchased?
The Titan Business Awards’ mission is to recognize outstanding achievement in firms that otherwise are overshadowed by large firms' budgets, which dominate other business awards programs.
The affordable submission fees allow start-ups, one-person firms and young individuals the opportunity to enter, as well as all entrepreneurs from countries where the exchange rate or the economic conditions would otherwise make entering impossible.
If an entrant is recognized as a winner, there is no additional fee. Many other awards programs charge an acceptance fee. With Titan Business Awards, once you've won, you've won; there is no additional fee.
If a winner decides to purchase a statuette, the Titan Business Awards makes them available by ordering them from our manufacturer. This offering process allows the Awards to maintain low entry fees and prevent non-winner’s subsidy of winners.
Some winners choose not to receive a physical memento. Their priority is the prestige of recognition and the exposure the comes with it. Others choose to order statuettes for individuals on their team as well as their client. It's all up to the winners!
Statuette shipping time
Winner awards are custom-made. Statuettes will ship directly from the manufacturer. Please allow 8-12 weeks for the statuettes. Shipping time may be longer during off-season. Statuettes may be ordered from our online store once winners are announced.
Entrants are liable to pay any inbound duties and taxes, should local customs authority deem appropriate.

Scam warning: Important information
There are many people and groups that attempt to obtain your money or personal information inappropriately through fraudulent means. Often, these people and groups misrepresent who they are in an effort to deceive you about the legitimacy of what they are claiming. Sometimes, although not always, they will claim that you have won a lottery or sweepstakes and ask that you send them money so that they can release your supposed winnings to you. In such a situation, you should be very careful and fully investigate any and all claims before you send any money. Please be aware that there are many scams that use SMS/e-mail in an attempt to defraud people using methods similar to these, and we warn strongly against your responding to this type of SMS/e-mail without rigorous investigation to establish whether it is of a genuine nature. Generally, you should treat unsolicited communication (e-mail, phone and letters) that offer financial gain with extreme suspicion; be aware that legitimate lotteries rarely, if ever, ask for a fee to release your winnings; you should not pay any requested fee in advance without fully investigating the matter; and you should not provide banking details or other sensitive financial information in response to emails, phone inquiries and letters without a thorough investigation. In recent years we have been aware of instances of individuals and fraudulent organizations that have been sending notices to people falsely claiming that the recipients have won a lottery. These notices falsely claim to be from IAA (MUSE CREATIVE AWARDS, MUSE DESIGN AWARDS, MUSE PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS, NYX AWARDS,LIT AWARDS,TITAN AWARDS, VEGA DIGITAL AWARDS) and even have the name and contact information of IAA (MUSE CREATIVE AWARDS, MUSE DESIGN AWARDS, MUSE PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS, NYX AWARDS,LIT AWARDS,TITAN AWARDS, VEGA DIGITAL AWARDS) employees along with IAA (MUSE CREATIVE AWARDS, MUSE DESIGN AWARDS, MUSE PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS, NYX AWARDS,LIT AWARDS,TITAN AWARDS, VEGA DIGITAL AWARDS) branding. These notices are completely fraudulent, cleverly designed to trick people into sending money for prizes they will never receive. IAA (MUSE CREATIVE AWARDS, MUSE PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS, NYX AWARDS, LIT AWARDS,TITAN AWARDS,VEGA DIGITAL AWARDS) is NOT AND HAS NEVER RUN a sweepstake, a lottery OR ANY FORM OF CONTEST OF THESE KINDS and has never asked anyone to wire money to redeem a prize. Please do not respond to any SMS, email, or any other means of communication claiming that you have won a prize.
