    Judging involves detailed review of qualified entries by a pre-screened group of eligible Association members and industry peers, who assign numerical scores to a number of pre-determined questions based on specific criteria established for each category. Judges score entries according to their individual assessments and impressions.

    Judging takes place on-line and for specific awards, also on-site. All entries and judging forms are audited for irregularities and inconsistencies by the accounting firm of MNP LLP.
