Who judges the awards?
In 2013 we will once again bring together another prominent panel of judges that is representative of the diversity of disciplines and organisation that make up the sector.
The judges will have the knowledge and experience to assess each entry according to its objectives and available resources and budget.
Please note: judges who have an association with any of the entries will not be allowed to vote on that entry.
What do the judges look for?
The aim of the Nursery World Awards is to recognise excellence. The judges will not be looking for bland, reassuring statements, but for examples of excellent organisations, teams, individuals, projects and initiatives, and equipment providers, properly profiled in the submission and supported with hard facts and/or illustrative material.
How will the entries be judged?
The judges will study all the submissions received, looking for examples of exceptional work. The judging teams will discuss the entries and each judge will award their own mark to each entry, with the finalists and winners being calculated from these marks.
The judges will have the right to move entries between categories if they feel the new category will be more appropriate.
