THE JUDGING PROCESS
Our judges comprise of an independent panel of senior representatives from end-user organisations, consultants and key industry players. Judges are split into groups and are assigned to categories, carefully selected by the editors of Electronics Weekly. Judges sign Non-Disclosure Agreements and must declare any association or involvement with any of the entries.
To ensure a rigorous, fair and transparent judging process, we undergo two judging stages:
The transparency and security of the judging process is hugely important to us.
For that reason, every judge signs a Non-Disclosure Agreement and all judges meetings are held in private, confidential environments. All scores are collated and verified to avoid anomalies and are then averaged to determine the winner.
The Elektra Awards team plus an independent panel of moderators supervise the judging process to identify and avoid any risk of bias and judges are asked to recuse themselves where they have a personal or professional interest.
