Entries and supporting material for all categories will then be handed over to the category sponsor. The sponsor will initially judge and score the entries. Please read the criteria qualifying information carefully before submitting your entry.
The judges for the Awards, represented by all the sponsors, will then review these entries and collectively come to a decision regarding finalists.
Notification will be sent to you if you have reached the finalists stage.
If you have not been successful in reaching the final, the sponsors are happy to give you feedback on your application.
From the finalist’s stage, the sponsors will draw up a list of businesses that they wish to visit. If you are shortlisted for more than one category, it is possible that you will have more than one visit.
Once the visits have taken place, the judges will form a panel meeting and decide who the category winners and runners up are.
All applicants will automatically be considered for the Outstanding Excellence Award.
The winners and runners up will then be announced at the Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony. All finalists will be invited to attend.
