7) HOW ARE THE AWARDS JUDGED?
All entries in each category will be judged on the basis that – in the opinion of the judging panel – the organisation has been agenda-leading in social impact, corporate responsibility and business sustainability in the period January 2018 – December 2018, unless stated differently in the category description, and their application includes sufficient verifiable supporting evidence by third parties, such as quotes from partners or stakeholders, as evidence of eligibility for the shortlist, and for the winner’s awards.

The opinion of the judging panel is final.


8) WHAT SHOULD I INCLUDE IN THE “QUOTES/COMMENTS FROM THIRD PARTIES” SECTION?

This section is for you to provide ‘proof’ that your project/initiative/etc. has been effective in the eyes of your stakeholders. We are looking for quotes/comments/press cuttings that cover your initiative positively and, most importantly, support the submission you are making. This section is not designed as an extension to "your submission", and will be judged as 'supporting evidence', not as a significant plank of your submission.
