Judges appointment process

Barker Brooks seeks to appoint the very best of the profession each year to the judging panel.

The panel is carefully selected to ensure the selection process is fair and objective and includes experts from across the industry. The judges are bound by a strict confidentiality agreement and are required to declare any conflict of interest in entries over which they deliberate and to stand aside from deliberations concerning those entries.

Judges give their time for free to judge the awards.

The organisers are sincerely grateful to the following individuals who make up this year’s panel.
