GPI reveals Global Poker Awards voting process

On the heels of last month’s announcement of the return of the Global Poker Awards – set for March 6, 2020 live from the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas – the GPI has announced a brand new and totally revamped voting process to determine the winners in all voting categories.

Gone are the days of nomination panel members voting in each and every category and a small jury panel determining the winners, the new process will seek more expert voters in each individual voting category. Those who are experts in media categories, will vote for media categories, those who are passionate about podcasts will vote in the podcast category and so on.

Those voting panel members will also determine the winners in each category, the process no longer involves a jury.

Voters will first be asked to vote in the preliminary round, where a large list of eligible candidates will be whittled down to a smaller group.

Voting panel members will once again vote in this final round and those results will determine the nominees and winners in each category. Final round voting will mimic how many major sports leagues vote for their year-end awards, using a 1st/2nd/3rd place system and points are then distributed based on those votes.

Fans will also have a hand at determining this year’s winners. In all voting categories, fans will also have the right to vote – fan votes will be tabulated and the top vote getters will receive a 1st, 2nd or 3rd place vote, based on those total fan votes.
