JUDGING

The judging process is rigorous and thorough to ensure that all the entries receive full consideration and that the most deserving winners are chosen.

Judges will take part in a judging conference call, where the winners and any highly commended entries in each category will be decided. Judges have discretionary power to move submissions into alternative categories that they think may be more suitable. All judges are required to sign a disclaimer form to keep information about entries and the winners confidential.

THE JUDGING PANEL

The judging panel will comprise representatives from CTA Intelligence, leading institutional, private investors and other industry experts.

Each member of the judging panel will have an equal vote in deciding the winners in each category. Decisions should be unanimous, but a majority will suffice.

Judging decisions will be based on performance, qualitative information and structural criteria.
