Scoring of Entries

Our aim

is to provide a robust and transparent Judging Process that provides clarity and confidence to all involved.

Entries are scored using pre-determined criteria, with written entries being assessed to decide short-lists of the Finalists who will go on to make 15 minute presentations to a panel of Judges at the Finals. Scores for live presentation at the event will add to written entry scores to determine overall winners in each category.

Overall Winner Awards will be presented to the entries with one for the highest score in the Sector Specific Categories and one will also be given to the highest score across the Discipline Specific, Categories. These will be announced along with all of the other categories.

All Finalists will receive benchmarked feedback reports to help enable continuous improvement, showing their performance against other Finalists, including Winners.

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 2-6 only.
