The Country Nominating Committees (CNCs) shall be representative of their respective countries and the Region. CNCs should be multi-disciplinary across the various award categories. These panels must present a good balance of age, experience, gender and ethnicity, reflecting the diversity of the country and Region.
Nominators are expected to bring to the selection process a broad Caribbean perspective in proposing and considering candidates, not only for their country, but also from the wider Caribbean community, with whose work they are familiar. They must not be narrow or parochial.
Nominators will have a well-developed sense of excellence and standards.
