The Judging Process

The awards will be judged by an international panel of carefully selected individuals, all of whom sign a Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA) and are vetted for any conflicts of interest. After being scored individually using set criteria, a judging day hosted remotely takes place. International judges will join via Skype to debate, challenge and decide upon a winner.

After much deliberation a winner and highly commended entry is chosen. Not all categories will attract a highly commended entrant, though some may be given multiple commendations based on merit.

To avoid judging penalties you must not:

  • Go over the 3 page limit on an entry
  • Use a font smaller than 10px
  • Differ from the structure of the template provided. You may use your own design of the template, however the criteria must be followed and the 3 page limit adhered to.

Commercial Confidence

It is very important that you provide evidence of commercial success and ROI, without these the judges cannot measure the success of your campaign and you may lose out on points otherwise easily gained.

We understand that this information is of a sensitive matter and therefore all judges will be required to sign a Non Disclosure Agreement. Any information you put into your entry will automatically be treated as ‘for judges eyes only’ and no information from your entry will go further than the judges. All judges are vetted for conflicts and any issues, no matter how small will be taken seriously both for our reputation and your peace of mind.
