The Judging Proccess
First, all applications will be sent to judges to independently score and then all applicants will be invited to an in-person meeting with the judges to discuss your application in more detail. This will take place JAN/FEB 2024
At least one of the judges will do a site visit to the shortlisted applicants to learn more about their business. These site visit will take place during MARCH 2023. When the judges visit you will be asked to record a piece to camera saying what it would mean to win an Award. This is a key element of the event production as the video will be used when announcing finalists at the Awards Ceremony.
You must be available during the weeks notified for the site visit and the meeting with the judges. Your application will not be considered further if you are not able to comply with these dates.
Every effort will be made to give you sufficient notice of the date/time of your site visit/meeting with the judges
