How Entries are Scored
Our aim is to provide a robust and transparent judging process that provides clarity and confidence to all involved. Entries are scored using predetermined criteria. These criteria are used to generate shortlisted finalists.
After the awards finals, your scores and feedback from your from your judging panel will be collated to produce you with an evaluation report. This will reveal how the judges scored your entry and how these scores compared to the other finalists in your category. It will also detail all of the comments provided by the judges based upon both your written entry and live presentations.
There are a standard set of 7 criteria across all of the categories. Each criterion has 100 marks available.
All 7 criteria will be used for both the short listing of finalists (by the Screening Panel) and for scoring written entries by the finalist judging panel. finalist presentations will be scored against criteria 2-7 only.
