Prior to judging, the nominated judges for each category will be provided with a list of the businesses who have nominated for that category. Judges will be asked to confirm that they have no connection with or conflict of interest in judging that category. Should there be a connection to a nominee or perceived conflict of interest, the judge will not be eligible to sit on that category panel. All judges will be independent of the sponsors for the Award they are judging. The judging panel’s decisions will be final and no correspondence will be entered into concerning the panel’s decisions. All judges will be required to sign a non-disclosure and confidentiality agreement.
Would you like to be on the judging panel? Expressions of Interest are encouraged from suitably qualified, experienced and knowledgeable business people who would like to be considered for the judging panel. Please send an EOI to firstname.lastname@example.org
