Judging Criteria

THE JUDGING PROCESS

Judges will read and pre-score all entry forms, considering any supporting materials submitted. Judges will be asked to give a score for each question within the entry form, as listed in the bullet points below. These will be combined to give an overall score for each entry. All judges pre-scores will then be combined and the highest scoring entries will determine the shortlists. 

Judges will meet to discuss the highest scoring entries and then agree the winner for each category. The shortlists will be announced on the 16 May 2017. The winners for each region will be announced at the awards ceremony in that area throughout June and July.

Only the PRCA DARE Awards Judges and the events team will see your entries. All judges will sign confidentiality agreements prior to receiving your entries.

Judges review and score entries remotely, to nominate their desired shortlist. The scores are then used to determine the winners in each of the 5 regions.

Judges will be looking for evidence of strategy and research, execution, creativity, originality and evaluation.

Organisations participating in the judging process are encouraged to enter the awards but will absent themselves from any discussion involving their organisation or any organisation in which they have an interest.

The Chairman of the Judges' decision is final.

The organisers reserve the right to publish submissions from the winners and shortlisted entrants. Where certain information is sensitive, such as budget figures, please mark ‘not for publication'.

If you would like to speak with someone about your entry, please call Elle Kersh on 01706 828855 or email elle.kersh@dontpanicprojects.com.
