WHO JUDGES THE MARKETING AWARDS?

A transparent and fair judging process is at the heart of all Prolific North Awards. Our carefully selected panel of judges will be split into subgroups depending on their expertise and assigned categories to score. Judges will read and score all entry forms, considering any supporting materials submitted if needed. Judges will be asked to give a score for each question within the Entry Information tab, as listed in the bullet points below. These will be combined to give an overall score for each entry. All judges’ pre-scores will then be combined and the highest scoring entries will determine the shortlists.

Judges then meet to discuss the highest scoring entries and agree the winner for each category. 

The winners of the individual awards will be decided by a combination of judges' scores and a public vote. We are happy to provide an overview of judges comments on your entry, please contact us on hello@prolificnorth.co.uk to arrange.
