           How Does The Judging Work?

...

  • Judges will review all nominations and will then develop a short list for each category.
  • Judges will consider each entry submission against the category criteria and their own discretion based on their relevant expertise.
  • The role of the Chair of Judges is to clarify the criteria, and to mediate in the event of a draw to determine a clear winner. The Chair of Judges does not have a casting vote.
  • Judges' decisions are final and binding; and no discussions or correspondence will be entered into relating to any of their decisions.
  • Any entrant who, in the opinion of the judges or the organisers, is perceived to have harassed or bribed any member of the panel or the Thames Valley Business and Community Awards team will have their entry disqualified.
  • The Thames Valley Business and Community Awards reserves the right to withdraw an entry from the judging process at any time if the entry is deemed inappropriate for any reason.
  • If it is found that any entrant has knowingly provided false information on their application for their entry, The Thames Valley Business and Community Awards reserves the right to withdraw any award at any time submitted by that organisation.
