At Awards International we pride ourselves on offering the best opportunity to companies to tell their business stories. We are focused on building on our reputation for having the fairest process for deciding business awards winners.

Each of our Awards programmes are judged by a large panel of independent and impartial business professionals, who are passionate about their role and meet our stringent criteria.

During the finals, many finalists’ presentations will be taking place and scored by the judges in what will be a large gathering of best practice in one place. Each of the judging rooms is set out for spectators and many of the presenters will open their sessions to others to watch and learn.

Every entrant whether an individual, SME, or large organisation has the same chance of impressing the judges and taking home the trophy on the day.

Judges are selected based on their experience and qualifications in a certain industry or business discipline. We aim to have large panels of independent experts, enabling us to allocate a reasonable number of entries to each judge to ensure that the evaluation is thorough.

Endorsement of Scoring Model by Cranfield School of Management

The scoring methodology and criteria are endorsed by Cranfield School of Management, one of the top Post Graduate Business Schools in the World.

Process for Scoring and Assessment

Recruitment of Judges

Awards International undertakes a comprehensive and rigorous process in the recruitment of Judges for each of the Awards programmes.

Judges are identified and contacted based on their relevance to the subject matter and categories available to enter.

All potential Judges selected by the Awards International Team as well as potential Judges who contact us directly must submit a CV to be accepted by our Judge Acceptance panel. Only after acceptance can they become a Judge.

Upon acceptance, each judge must also agree to the terms and conditions of becoming a Judge as well as accepting the terms of an NDA and Confidentiality Agreement.


The criteria followed is very comprehensive; it acts as an important assessment tool for entrants and it helps them better understand their sustainability strategy. The judging process is very transparent, accountable and fair and gives the chance for judges to give developmental feedback to strengthen the entrants strategy. I really encourage all companies to apply for the award as it will be a great learning experience.

Judging process was well thought of and transparent. The online judging allowed us to get insight into the initiatives proposed and read in depth about them, rather than just listening to presentations and scoring soley based on that.
