  • The judges’ decision is final, and no correspondence or discussion will be entered into or feedback given regarding the selection of nominations or winners.
  • In the interest of transparency, judges, the firms they work for and any firms in which they have a significant interest will not be eligible to enter the Awards.
  • Judges will not allow personal relationships or experiences to influence judging marks or decisions and their judging will be impartial and based on the standard of entry, campaign, organisation or product.

  • All judging discussions are confidential and will not be shared or discussed with anyone outside of the judging panel ahead of the Awards ceremony or thereafter.
  • Judges will not share confidential material received in their capacity as a judge, judging papers or entries with anyone outside the judging panel (where that member of the judging panel is also scoring the same entry) and/or JFL.
