JUDGING PROCESS

  • An Advisory Board is formed and they provide input on categories and criteria
  • Industry leaders and experts are invited to sit on the judging panel
  • Nominations are submitted by companies and individuals which are then sent to the panel to judge based on the criteria outlined per category
  • Every judge is given a maximum of two categories to critic
  • All judges submit their score per entry and these are then calculated and approved by our independent auditing firm, verification partner Mazars
  • If a judge is scoring a category with an entry for their company, project or colleague, they are directed not to score that entry to ensure the process is fair and transparent
  • Neither the organisers nor the sponsors select the finalists or winners
  • Based on these scores the finalists are announced on our website, a press release, a mailer and are contacted by the Organisers
