The World Chambers Competition jury comprises an international and diverse group of individuals featuring ICC WCF leadership and representatives from chambers of commerce worldwide and other recognised global organisations.

Each jury member is appointed to evaluate the projects submitted to each of the four categories of the Competition. Shortlisted finalists go on to present their respective projects to members of the global chamber network attending the biennial ICC WCF World Chambers Congress. Judges announce the four winners of the Competition during the Congress Gala, which takes place on the final day of the Congress.
