Judging Process

  • All entries are judged on merit and against the criteria for that particular Award. Criteria can be found by clicking on the individual Awards. Please make sure that applications address the criteria wherever possible.  Read the paragraph ‘What the Judges are looking for’ as this too will be taken into consideration.
  • Each Award will be judged by a panel of three judges. These are three highly respected and senior business people in the area with different specialisms. The Chamber will ensure fair play and that the entrants meet the requirements for entry. 

As well as submitting the formal application form, applicants can also submit up to 3 pieces of relevant supporting evidence. Please note the key word here is ‘Relevant’.  This evidence may include testimonials, newspaper articles, accounts etc.

All entries are free and the Awards is open to all businesses in Northern Lincolnshire, whether Chamber members or not. Chamber membership is not mentioned on the application form and is not a consideration. The judging panels are not aware of who are members of the Chamber and who are not.

The Awards will be judged on 26th March and nominees announced.

Please note the Judges decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
