The 2019 judges will be announced soon.
The Evaluation Process
Entries will be reviewed and judged by the panel using a matrix scoring system. The judges will be looking for evidence of development, implementation, and application of the issues detailed in each award category. Shortlisted entrants will be announced on Monday 17th December 2018.
