Confidentiality

To avoid conflicts of interest, no judge is permitted to consider entries from a company / person they are associated with. To ensure the privacy of the information you submit, each judge has signed a Confidentiality Agreement.

Judging Process

After the entry deadline of Tuesday 27 June, the judges will be sent the entries in the category they have been assigned. NB: It is at this point that judges will inform CIEH of any potential conflicts of interest. Each judge will consider the entries on their own before coming together with their fellow judge/s to jointly agree on a shortlist and winner (they may choose to also award a Highly Commended). If they are not able to come to a joint decision, the decision will be deferred to the Chair of Judges.
