Q. How do the judges select the winners?
The Agrow Awards are independently judged. Judging will take place in August 2017. The Judging Panel is an independent group of senior industry experts from around the world – guaranteeing objectivity and credibility. Judges are carefully allocated categories based on their specialist knowledge, expertise and experience within the industry.
Once entries have been received and processed, they will be distributed to the relevant judges for that category. There will be a minimum of three judges allocated to each category. The judges will use the published criteria against which to score the entry. They then submit their individual scores, which are collated before the finalists and, of course, the winners, are selected. A shortlist will be published; however, details of the winners will be embargoed and revealed only on the night of the awards ceremony itself.
The Chair of the Judging Panel reserves the right to cast any deciding vote, should the need arise. The judges’ decision is final and neither the organisers nor the Judging Panel will enter into any correspondence about the results.
Q. How will I know if my submission has been successful?
A. Following the judging, all companies and individuals will be notified by email. Finalists will be announced on our website agrowawards.com and in the Agrow marketing email. You will then be sent a finalist pack giving ideas and tips on how to publicise your success.
Q. What do I get if I win?
A. The Agrow Awards are highly regarded within the industry, winning an award marks you out as a leader in your field. In addition to your trophy and a certificate of recognition you will receive a winner’s pack which includes your awards winner logo, photos and ideas on how to publicise your success.
