All entries to the Beyond Sport Global Awards will be judged based on Beyond's Sports Five Basic Principles:
Model – Have a structure in place that uses sport as a primary tool to drive positive social transformation
Impact – Lives have been significantly changed by delivering a demonstrable, long-term benefit to those with which you have engaged.
Sustainability – Have a sound plan to be financially and structurally sustainable.
Share – Practical insights or programmatic elements can be shared with other organizations addressing similar social issues and the organization is a willing and active collaborator.
Inclusion – Everyone is allowed equal access regardless of gender, disability, religion or sexuality, whilst also recognizing some projects may have a clear rationale for being exclusive to a particular target group.
