The judging panel will consist of representatives from REC and IRP in addition to other respected industry leaders. We will also have an independent Chair who will facilitate the process, but will take no part in the judging.
Method of Judging The process will be in two parts, with each entry being considered independently and impartially by our panel of judges whose task it is to narrow the applications down to finalists in each category.
- First stage - initial judging and selection process
- Second stage - final judging to select the winner in each category
Highly commended awards will be at the judges’ discretion. There will be one winner per category.
The judges will take into consideration the merit of the entries and the extent to which the entries meet the relevant award criteria.
The decision of the judging panel is final. No correspondence will be entered into. The judges reserve the right to move an entry from one category to another.
