Four entries were presented to this, the sixth edition of the Data Protection by Design Award. Despite the quality these candidacies may have from perspectives other than that of personal data protection, following their evaluation in line with the standards established in the rules of the call none of the entries was found to meet the requirements necessary to be recognised with the Data Protection by Design Award.

Consequently, in accordance with the Resolution of 25 January 2018 (DOGC 7553 – 07.02.2018), at the meeting held on 14 May 2018 at the headquarters of the Catalan Data Protection Authority, the Jury constituted to consider the entries unanimously agreed to declare VOID the 2018 Data Protection by Design Award.
