The selection process for the awards involves an impartial panel of industry experts who generously volunteer their time to evaluate submissions. These individuals are chosen for their expertise and experience. Judges eview entries, ensuring a fair and unbiased evaluation. In cases where judges have conflicts of interest within specific categories, they abstain from participating in the assessment of those particular entries. Upon the submission deadline, judges receive all entries in a uniform format, ensuring compliance with data protection regulations. Each entry is then scored by the judges based on the defined criteria for each category. Judges meet to discuss their assessments and collectively reach a final decision on a single day, solely based on the content provided in the written entries. It is crucial to note that the entire judging process is conducted confidentially, and all decisions reached during this process are considered final.

The 2024 Judges will be announced shortly.......
