All judging will take place online
Round 1 judging takes place between 7 March and 14 March
Working individually, judges will be asked to review your entry and score it against the judging criteria. To do this they will use your entry form, your website and any supporting material you have submitted.
Since judges will not have access to a physical copy of your product, could you please also supply the following to assist them:
Login details and instructions for any online products
A video demonstration for any physical product.
Tips for the video
• Max 3 mins in length
• This demo does NOT need to be a slick marketing video, it can as simple as one person explaining to camera how to use your product. It can be recorded on your phone or via zoom.
• Please submit as a link to an externally hosted platform such as YouTube or Vimeo, or to a website where the video is hosted. Please do not send large video files.
• Please submit your video by the closing date of 25 February.
Round 2 takes place between 11 and 21 April
At the end of the first round the judges preliminary scores will be tallied up and the top 10-15 entries in each category will be invited to go through to round 2. If you have been selected to take part in round 2 you will be notified by 18 March.
During Round 2 each entrant will be given a 4 minute slot to attend a video meeting where you will be able to pitch your product to the judges. These meetings will take place between 11 and 21 April. Judges will be off camera and anonymised and time limits will be strict. We will provide further guidance on these pitches should you be shortlisted.
Once all presentations have been made, the judges will then deliberate together online and make their final decisions for each category.
The finalists will be announced on Friday 18 March and the winners unveiled at our gala awards ceremony on Friday 6 May.
