Among the nominees are projects that are making a real difference to the life of the city, promoting Moscow in the international market, and integrating the city into new professional networks. The nominees are selected by an advisory council composed of professionals and experts put forward by the awards’ organising committee. Winners are chosen by public vote based on the list of nominees published on the official site of the Mayor of Moscow.
