The WCTV Clapper Awards are presented to the producers of the best programming on WCTV during the past year in a variety of categories. To determine the winners, nominated programs will be judged on popularity, and on the quality of the content and production. The “popularity” score will be based on the total number of votes received from online ballots.
The “quality” of each program will be judged by a panel of impartial media professionals, and will be based on presentation of subject matter, content, production quality, and overall impression. The combination of the “popularity” score and the “quality” score will determine the honorable mention, runner-up, and first place Clapper Award winner. In the event of a tie, the program with the highest “quality” score will be the winner.
