The panel below will then be responsible for choosing a winner in each category from the shortlist.
No judge can enter into any discussion with entrants at any point and any judge that may have a vested interest in a category will not participate in any of the decision-making for that category.
In addition, on the judging day, we split our judging panel in two to avoid any conflicts of interest and to speed up the process. Each group judges half the categories. That way we can ensure as far as possible that people are not judging the entries of their direct competitors.
For the purposes of judging, we appreciate that some of the data we ask for can, in certain circumstances, be sensitive and confidential in nature. All are judges clearly understand that any information included in entries is supplied on a confidential basis, and is not to be used for any purpose other than judging entries.
