Judging Process

  2. All award categories will be decided by the judges via nomination review and feedback from showcase events.
  3. Judges scores will be counted and used to select the winner.
  4. If no applications have been received for a given category then the panel of judges will select a winner from all submissions received and the judge’s decision is final.

  6. A company or person cannot win more than one category.

Terms & Conditions for Judges

  1. Judges will have their photos and profiles listed on our Judges page and will be expected to help with the nomination screening and selecting the winners in many of the award categories.
