Contest VOTING PROCESS

During the challenges, Jury members are not the ones that need to be convinced by you – it is your fellow group members that need to be impressed!

There will be three different challenges. All participants will be distributed equally into eight different groups and for every challenge, the groups will change.

After each challenge, you get to vote through our website (access will be given at the contest). You can distribute 1 – 6 points for up to three different people from within your group. For example, you can choose person A who receives three points and person B who receives five points. It is up to you, how many people you want to distribute points to (max. three people) and how many points you want to give every person. If you want to, you can also give no vote to anyone.

You cannot give points to yourself – we will see that 😉

Dinner Arrangements , June 22

We have prepared the list of the restaurants within the area of different price range and menu offers, to make sure everyone can find something to their taste. You will find the list of suggestions with possible reservations below. For proper coordination we will arrange Table Captains to bring everyone safe and sound to the restaurants. Captains will be announced during the RAHM Contest.
