The Judging Process

The awards are judged by an international panel who are made to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). All judges are carefully chosen and vetted to avoid any conflicts of interest prior to starting the role. After using a set criteria for the individual scoring, a judging day will take place via Skype to debate, challenge and finally agree upon a winner.

After much debate, a winner and highly commended entry will be chosen. Not every category will contain a highly commended entrants, though some may attract multiple commendations according to quality and excellence.



Commercial Confidence

To avoid losing marks, please ensure that you provide full evidence of any commercial success and ROI gained within the period, as without it, we cannot measure the success of the campaign.

All judges are required to sign a Non Disclosure Agreement, and are vetted to avoid any conflict of interest. This is so we can guarantee that all sensitive matter is protected and judged fairly. All information is highlighted for ‘judges eyes only’ and no details from your entry will go further than the judges.

We do ask that the opening statements are not marked for judges eyes only as well as 3 sound bites. In the event you are one of our chosen winners, we will present your case online and on the night with these statements.
