2022 judging process

Each year, a selection of accomplished finance professionals within the region are invited to join the judging panel as an industry recognised guest judge. They are responsible for helping decide which businesses will make the final shortlist by providing their judges scores.

  • If your initial application is successful, applicants/nominees will be invited by a member of the Award Partners to join them for the second stage of the application process.
  • This stage will involve an informal virtual meeting with the judging panel. The panel will consist of the Award Partners and an industry expert as a guest judge, who will discuss with you the application put forward, this will last approx 40-60 minutes
  • Once confirmed, the applicant/nominee will be sent pre-set questions that will structure the second stage interview. 

Guest judges will be invited to the exclusive Awards evening and have the opportunity to network with the region’s top finance talent.

This year’s judging process will take place 12th - 23rd September 2022.
