Selection of finalists
More than 125 applications from around 40 countries were received, said Cinet. Before Covid-19 came along five pre-selections were already organised and the winners automatically qualified for the final presentation. Six pre-selections needed to be cancelled or were organised virtually. The Cinet international pre-selection jury evaluated all applications and the finalists were invited to give a virtual pitch presentation of three minutes for an online judging session. The 20-strong Cinet GBPAP 2020 international jury viewed the presentations on 5 November online.
