After the cut-off date on 31 August 2022, the group of experts uses an evaluation matrix from all applications and nominations to create a longlist consisting of 40 entries. The longlist is published on 15 September 2022 on the DMP website. Afterward, the audience is called on to vote online. At the same time, two jury members evaluate the projects. The audience and jury evaluations are included in the shortlist in a 30:70 ratio.
The jury discusses the shortlist and votes on it using a secret ballot during the jury meeting on 26 October 2022. Every project on the shortlist receives transparent feedback from the jury.
On 27 October 2022, the prizewinners of DMP 2022 will be announced as part of a festive award ceremony.
