Each category has been assigned judges who will operate independently. We have also appointed an independent adjudicator who will oversee the judging process to ensure it is open and fair.
The judges have now completed their first round of judging based on the application forms they received. They are now in the process of visiting their shortlisted businesses and adding up their final scores. This visit may be announced or a mystery shop depending on the category.
Up to five finalists in each category will be announced at our finalists event in February.
Our Awards Dinner will be held at the BIC on 19th March 2020 where we will announce gold, silver and bronze winners.
