All votes are public and traceable using an W1 Platform decentralized blockchain.

Special screening privileges are available to voting Members during The American WORLD FILM AWARDS™ season. W1 Platform strives to provide an equitable opportunity for all nominated films to be seen not only in theater, but also on W1 Platform App.
