The most respected awards are usually those with the best judging process. Win or lose, we expect everyone in the room to acknowledge that the winners were worthy of their accolade.
In the first round of judging, small groups of category judges will review submitted entry material and then vote in a secret ballot against each of the judging criteria, ranking the top three entries for each criteria. Votes will be counted and verified by an independent adjudicator.This voting process will ensure absolute fairness in the selection of the shortlisted entries. Shortlisted entries will be reviewed in discussion by committees of the judging panel before a further round of voting by secret ballot. Winners will not be announced until the awards presentation evening.
