In November, MIPIM Asia delegates will vote on site at the Awards gallery for their favourite project in each category. Their vote will be combined with the jury's vote, each group making up 50% of the final decision. The final results will determine the ranking of each category winners: Gold, Silver or Bronze. The rewarded projects will receive ultimate recognition during the Awards Gala dinner at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Hong Kong on Thursday 8 November 2012.

New this year, the 30 winners will be submitted to a pre-MIPIM Asia online vote open to the public who will choose the winner of "Your Choice Award".
