The judging process is rigorous and thorough to ensure that all the entries receive full consideration and that the true winners are chosen.  The panel of industry professionals are involved in two separate judging stages:

Step one: Judges will review all the entries based on the criteria and will then draw up their shortlists.  This will take place over the course of a week via conference calls.

Step two: Judges will re-review the entries based on the criteria to decide the winners.

Please note: Performance, activity and initiatives from March 2014 - March 2015 will be considered.
