Judging Process

The judging process is rigorous and thorough to ensure that all the entries receive full consideration and that the true winners are chosen. 

Judges will take part in a judging conference call, where the winners will be decided, with one expert per category who will be asked to summarize and provide additional input.

Judges have the discretionary power to move submissions into alternative categories that they think may be more suitable.  All judges are required to sign a disclaimer form to keep information about companies and the final winners confidential. 

The judging panel

The panel of expert judges are carefully selected for their wealth of experience and expertise, as well as their absence of conflicts of interest.

PLEASE NOTE: Judges do not judge any categories that their company has been entered in and are obliged to declare that they have no conflicts of interest prior to judging.
