Competition Process

Competition Process

Entries for the 2019 Enterprise Vision Awards will close on Monday 10th June at midnight.

Applications for each category will be assessed by the Executive Judging Panel and they will shortlist an average of ten applicants per category. The Executive Panel will also put forward applicants for categories if that they feel they are more relevant for the individual.

The shortlist will be scored individually and independently by a panel of no less than three judges without any conferring. Once the shortlist scores have been collated an average of six finalists will be selected. These individuals will then attend a twenty minute interview which will be conducted by the panel of judges under the supervision of an adjudicator.

The judges have been selected from a variety of businesses covering various skills and expertise. The judges will individually score each finalist, and these are then collated.

When the judges scores are either tied or within a margin of just 2% between finalists the votes received are added and will decide the winner. No one judge has the overall power to decide the winner.

Voting will be open for each category once all the finalists have been announced. Voting will be open from week commencing Monday 19 August 2019. Voting closes Friday 6th September 2019 at midnight.
