- The “Crystal Scales of Justice” Prize will be presented to the winner and the Council of Europe if possible during the main event organised in the framework of European Day of Justice each year on October 25th.
- Two representatives of each institution or organisation which submitted the nominated schemes will be invited to attend the Prize awarding ceremony.
- The organisers undertake to arrange appropriate publicity for the prize-winning initiative and for the three projects that receive a special mention.
