Have a gift for spotting the tell-tale signs of a winning paper?
All members are invited to be involved with the Star Awards judging and will be allocated categories to score the case studies online. Members at Leader level and invited judges with category insights will be invited to sit on the panels which decide the shortlists and winners.
If you’d like to take part as a judge, please register here by the end of January 2024.
The judging dates are Wednesday 20 & Thursday 21 March and Wednesday 8 May 2024. Judges will be allocated either a two-hour morning or afternoon session assessing entries where there is no conflict of interest. If there is any potential conflict of interest the judging chair should be informed at the start of the session.
Judges must score the entries online at least 48 hours prior to attending a panel session.
Judges can bulk download their assigned entries on Award Force by clicking ‘bulk download’ at the bottom left of their judging view.
We recommend that all judges read the ultimate guide for any questions they have on the Award Force system.
The online scoring may influence the judging but may not determine the shortlists or winners. The average scores provided to the judging panels will include those provided by the Future Leaders and First Role member scores.
The final decision will be made by the judging panel with the Judging Chair having the casting vote if required.
The Judging Chair also reserves the right to recommend reviewing entries in other categories.
A maximum of 6 entries will be shortlisted in any category.
Gold, Silver and Bronze awards will be awarded in most categories if a minimum standard has been achieved.
Entrants will be provided with their average scores, if requested, across the various judging criteria.
Judging will be held virtually via Zoom.
