Judging Panel

ARN would like to thank all of those committing their time to judging the Awards.

As the judge, you will receive a short-listed finalists' pack in July. It is optimally 5-8 finalists per award. You will need to select one winner (company or individual) for each appropriate award.

Vendors do not vote in the vendor category, distributors do not vote in the distributors category and partners do not vote in the partner, start-up, emerging technology and homegrown categories.

You are one of over 175 judges. Your judging is extremely important to the Awards' process. The scores you provide are completely confidential and will be reported only in combination with those of other judges. Therefore, in the individual categories, you are able to cast your vote for someone you know or who works with or for you.

Judging criteria should be unbiased and based on the quality of the nomination presented.
