The procedure comprises an open call launched in all the countries of the European Union and a first selection based on formal criteria, target group and general content of the submitted applications. All selected organizations are then visited by a staff member of the Evens Foundation and detailed visit reports are prepared for an international Jury deliberations.

The Jury assess all the proposals and select the laureate(s). The winner(s) are  invited to the Award Ceremony during the next Media Meets Literacy conference.
