Judging process

 

Each judge is given one or two categories to judge, and after entries close in July they are sent the entry forms for review and comment.

 

The panel then meet in September to discuss the entries to each category and determine a shortlist. We normally try to shortlist between 5-7 entries for each category. Each entry is then scored and Gold and Silver winners will be chosen for each category.

 

The shortlist of finalists is announced in October.
