Judging Criteria

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. 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.

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 seven 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 Where certain information is sensitive, such as budget figures, please mark ‘not for publication’.
