The process begins with members of the retail associations submitting their nominations by July 31, 2015. These associations include Council of Shopping Centers, United Brands Association, Food Retailers Association, Association of Turkish Furniture Manufacturers, Association of Fashion Designers, Registered Brands Association and Turkish Restaurant and Entertainment Association.
Each association analyzes the eligibility of the suggestions and presents the grand jury with three nominees for each category. (The only exception of this stage is the Best HR Program Award, where the nominations are gathered at Soysal to be presented to the jury.)
The grand jury evaluates the nominees from associations and announces short lists for each category.
After the last jury meeting and voting process, the winners are determined. The winners are then revealed at the Retail Sun Awards Ceremony at Retail Days on November 26, 2015.
