Nominations must be accompanied by electronic copies of the three most recent is- sues of the periodical, published consecutively.
The prize shall be awarded on the basis of a decision made by an international jury consisting of five members appointed by the FIT Executive Committee, which shall also nominate the jury chairperson.
