The awards are judged by a panel made up of internal and external representatives. Judges will read and pre-score all entry forms, considering any supporting materials submitted. All judges pre-scores will then be combined and the highest scoring entries will determine the shortlists. Judges will meet to discuss the highest scoring entries and agree the winner for each category.

Shortlisted companies from the individual business categories will also be asked to attend a face to face interview.

This year’s judging panel will be announced shortly.
