All entries will be assessed by a panel of judges, comprising of representatives from various industry associated third parties. The Awards Judging Facilitator will oversee the judging process and ensure impartiality.
Entries are judged based on criteria set out for each category and will be scored out of 100 with the three highest scores being awarded Gold or Highly Commended. The judges may also award a ‘Merit’ Award if applicable.
In the event of a tie, the judges may confer to determine a result.
Judges will deliberate via teleconference or other means as appropriate to determine the Major Awards.
No information in relation to winners or entrants is made available to the SPASA Board, local committees nor anyone outside of immediate facilitation in advance of the Awards presentation night.
