WHAT IS THE ENTRY PROCESS?

Each award has its own entry form which needs to be completed in full.

 

The judging process for each award will be the same:

 

  • The completed forms will be marked by an independent judging panel.

 

  • A short list will be drawn up for each for each award.

  • The shortlist will be invited for an interview or to present to the judging panel (depending on the award) and answer any questions the judges may have.

 

  • The judging panel will decide the winner based on a split between the written entry and the final presentation.  This will vary across the awards and the split will be confirmed in the entry notes for each award.

 

The judges' decision will be final.
