Judging Process

Our judging process is managed by R3, a third party company whom we’ve worked closely with for a number of years to deliver a robust and transparent judging system. R3 divide categories up in a way which means judges are not able to mark entries that could be a conflict of interest in any way.

  • The awards are important because the good and the great of the industry are here. You get to meet all your peers and it’s a fabulous way of rewarding the best of the best.
    Austen Hawkins
    CEO, f2f Events Ltd
  • This is our time to stand out and cheer on our companies.
    Alice Fulton
    Senior Sales, Diversified Communications
  • I think this is very good for younger talent. It rewards them and gives them a great buzz. It shows them it’s really important to do well in your job. It’s a very valuable way to present your company to the wider world.
    James Ormiston
    CEO, Circdata
