Athlete selection criteria in order of priority:

First, the athletes are selected according to the level of performance and the quality of their performances over the year 2021 (1is Dec 2020-1is Dec 2021) in order of priority: international, regional (Oceania, Overseas) then local. The degree of competition must also be taken into account (number of license holders in a discipline, the number of participants in the competition, in the category as well as the sports category itself (professional or amateur, senior or veteran, etc.)
  2. Secondly, take into account the athlete’s attitude, his tendency to professionalization (preparation, way of life), his propensity to be an ambassador for the positive values ​​of sport and of French Polynesia, the quality of the year’s performances in relation to the athlete’s career.
  3. Finally, if possible, make room for sports specially practiced in Polynesia, in particular the va’a, take into account a certain balance in the selection according to the disciplines mainly practiced in Polynesia (surfing/va’a/martial arts/ball sports) when there are ballotages.

*For each selection proposal made throughout the year by a member of the jury, by a sports federation, by a club or by an athlete himself, specify the performance(s) 2021 (place, type of competition, category…). The final jury meeting takes place on the first Saturday of December.

*Postulate n°1 = The winner of a category cannot be named the following year among those selected, unless he changes category. For example, a winner in the hopeful category may be named the following year in the best athlete category.

*Assumption n°2 = The winner of the Grand Prix du public cannot be awarded the prize for male or female athlete of the year by the jury, the latter will go to the second choice of the jury in relation to their votes.

The aim of these two postulates is to vary the list of nominees from one year to the next as much as possible, giving visibility to more athletes. Consider the competition as a “game” since we compare disciplines and athletes who are theoretically “incomparable”.
