For the regional awards we invite a panel of independent industry experts to join our judging panels. We have one panel per category and each is made up of 3-5 judges who have specific knowledge relating to the category sector.
Our judges review and independently score each entry before coming together to discuss the entries in more detail. Through a combination of the paper entry, business verification process, judge’s knowledge/personal experiences and site visits/interviews where appropriate, our judges complete the unenviable task of choosing a shortlist and winner for each region against guidelines for the category.
We would like to thank the 2018/19 judging panels for their hard work and continued support of the awards. All judges give their time freely and do not receive any fee for their support.
