Generally, the nominators are the focal points of creative cities for UNESCO. The nominators are entrusted with the tasks of making the call for and collecting entries, organizing the first screening, and eventually nominating candidates.
All nominators have the liberty to decide the methods, processes and schedules for their own nominations.
In the event that focal points do not possess adequate resources, expertise, experiences, etc.， to perform nominations, they are allowed to commission or entrust the nominations to local professional design institutions or organisations whom they believe possess relevant and adequate capabilities and capacities.
However, such a shift of nominating parties should NOT be deemed as the establishment of relationships of any kind between SCCDA and the commissioned or entrusted third parties. Focal points should exercise discretion when selecting nominators.
Each Creative City can have more than one nominating organization. Nominators can only nominate entrants who are natives of or have been living for at least two years in the nominators’ cities.
Nominators will be given accounts and passwords (specific technical instructions will be given later) to register on behalf of nominees or instruct nominees to register online before 31 December 2022.
Shipping of tangible works must be arranged so as to arrive at the warehouse (the address will be given via email) designated by the Secretariat before 15 January 2023.
