Other factors taken into consideration included research and written articles, voluntary service, participation in sports and in social activities, etc.

The panel of judges was comprised of Runólfur Smári Steinthórsson, Professor at the University of Iceland, Guðrún Norðfjörð, Marketing Director at Forlagið and Sigríður Guðmundsdóttir, HR Manager at Landsbankinn.
