The Judging Process

1. Judges score each question within the entry form based on the outlined criteria.

2. These are then combined to create an overall score for each entry.

3.  All judges' scores are totaled and the highest scoring entries will determine the shortlist.

4. Judges meet to discuss the highest scoring entries and then agree on the category winner.

The shortlist will be announced in February, 2018. The winners will be announced at the awards gala held in March, 2018.


All material will remain confidential to the judges, who are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Winning case studies may be used in post-event materials to promote best practices. Permission will be sought from entrants before publishing.
