A board of jury comprising members from all walks of life evaluates the submissions thoroughly and decides the works, on basis of their relevance for the ordinary man, to be highlighted and awarded. We value the integrity of our Awards. We remove shortlist bias, consider the spread of work for community, and ensure that entries are judged in the first round based on the innovation, creativeness, effectiveness and consistent efforts. Entries without submission of completed application form with required documents/ evidences in hard form shall not be considered for screening. The OMA Core Team is a mere custodian of the Odisha Media Award 2015. The OMA Core Team will neither be a part of the jury nor will influence the decision making of the Jury in any manner. The decision of the Jury board is final. We wish luck to all nominees. May the best one be the winner!
