Judges will be sent the entries.
The completed applications for each category are sent to the relevant judging panel for independent reviewing/scoring. There is a separate panel of four judges for each category and they are ONLY sent the entries in the category they are judging and will not receive any other information.
Judges will score all entries against the scope and criteria, so please make it clear how your application addresses every point.
Each panel will hold a meeting online to agree their category finalists for 2021. When every panel has met...
The 2021 Finalists will be announced on 22 April!
26 April to 14 May 2021
Online interviews held with all finalists and their panel of judges. This does take some time to organise, working globally and coordinating the diaries of all the judges and all the finalists, but once all interviews have taken place....
Judges then meet to unanimously agree 2021 winners.
So we can't come together in person to celebrate the winners this year, so we are taking the Awards presentations online. There will be a series of four short online events in June 2021. Watch out for more details!
We will also be tweeting live from the events using the hashtag #eAAwards
