Our finalists each receive a score from the panel of judges. Sometimes there are clear winners and other times it can result in a tie or a very close result.
The public can cast a vote for the finalists that they would like to see win and the total of these votes are added to the judges scores and this is how we arrive with our Winners.
We have placed the Winners 2015 below and shown where the judges top scoring finalist won and where the votes tipped the balance as scores were a tie or extremely close.
