The judging process is rigorous and thorough to ensure that all the entries receive full consideration and that the true winners are chosen.
Judges will take part in a judging conference call, where the winners will be decided, with one expert per category will be asked to summarise the judges comments and provide any additional input as required. Judges have discretionary power to move submissions into alternative categories that they think may be more suitable. All judges are required to sign a disclaimer form to keep information about entries and the final winners confidential.
