The judging process is split between two main stages, the online filter stage followed by the panel judging stage when a winner is decided for each category.
The first stage of judging is completed online. The judges read through all entries & mark accordingly to the criteria given within each category. The marks and comments are collated, which will determine the shortlist.
The second stage of judging takes place mid-July when the judging panels come together to determine the winners of each category.
