The judges will convene in November to assess every single entry submitted for the awards programme.
Entries in all of the categories are judged on their relative merits, and through discussion, deliberation and a simple scoring system, the top four entries within each category become the finalists for the awards evening.
These finalists are put out to a public vote throughout December and January, however, the ranking (positions 1-4) decided by the judges carry the following overall weighting:
1st – 40%
2nd – 30%
3rd – 20%
4th – 10%
This places the majority of the decision with the judging panel but still allows for a voting process to take place.
