Judges & Judging

The judges include association executives with roles that suit the categories, and one expert consultant per category, so that the most experienced and expert people are judging.

How does the judging work

Our judges are experienced in the field of the category, not just Association CEOs. We adopt an approach that avoids bias.

  • Each category is judged by three judges or more, who independently score each entry based on the judging criteria for each category, with weighting set up by the Awards team
  • Judges do not know who the other judges of the same category they are judging, nor are they able to view other judges' scoring or any ratings or rankings.
  • We are using state-of-the-art secure and confidential awards management and judging system provided by Eventfolio / Pixl8 Group
  • Judges agree a code of conduct, which is closely monitored
