Привет, друзья!
Какую идиому вы бы использовали на английском, эквивалентную нашему "по гамбургскому счету" ?

This is a description of idea of professionals' judgement re TEFI award:

The ‘Hamburg’ scale (ranking)

The idea was not an original one. The award was planned as an analogy to the well known American Emmy awards, where a group of authoritative professionals reward their colleagues for their successes, rating them on the ‘Hamburg scale’ (that term is based on Viktor Shklovsky’s tale about circus artists meeting behind closed doors once a year to determine their rankings and who is best at what).

Professionals voting for one or another project had to be able to show objectivity and honesty; they were voting for their fellow professionals, so the TEFI juries were usually drawn from previous winners, thus demonstrating both their competence and integrity.

I just modified some writing one could find down there:
