Judging process

Judging process

Our aim is to provide a robust and transparent judging process that provides clarity and confidence to all involved.


What happens to your entry?


STEP 1: Entries are submitted. In order to be in with a chance of being shortlisted, you must answer all of the questions on the entry form.


STEP 2: Entries are scored on their ability to meet the pre-determined criteria set out in the category description.


STEP 3: A secret shopper will be employed to make checks on the shortlisted companies, to ensure they meet the level required to become a finalist.


STEP 4: The finalists are advised that they have made it through.


STEP 5: The judges will be given access to the finalist’s entries. They will work independently of each other, and therefore only know who their top choices are.


The judges will be asked to select up to six finalists, awarding them one to six points. They are also required to give detailed reasons for their first three choices in each category.


STEP 6: The judges scores are added up, to arrive at a winner for each category


STEP 7: The winners are announced at The Bridal Buyer Awards on the 10 September
