The judging process:

  • The category sponsor has full responsibility of judging their own award, they can choose to do this in house or hire external judges to complete this.
  • We encourage sponsors to contact entrants to ask for further information or arrange to meet in order to identify the three finalists and winner of their category.
  • The judging period will continue for a period of three weeks from Friday 15th March, to Friday, 12th  April 2019.
  • All financial information submitted to the award judges will remain confidential.
  • The judging process is carried out in accordance with a strict set of criteria and is based on the information gathered from entrants throughout the applications and judging process.
  • All judges will be asked to supply just reason for their decisions and be able to provide evidentiary support should this be required.
  • The business editor and publisher of the Derby Telegraph will then review the finalists to ensure they are satisfied with all sponsor’s decisions, they reserve the right to overrule any decision made.
