Judging process

Nominees may nominate themselves or others more than once in multiple categories. A non-refundable nominations fee of $95 (including GST) is payable when you submit your nomination.

Once received entries will be shortlisted by desk audit to ensure that they adhere to criteria set out for each award category. The shortlisted nominations will then be assessed by an independent panel of judges (view their profiles here) chaired by an ASIAL representative who does not vote in selecting a winner.

The judges are responsible for awarding the winners and finalists of each category. Their decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. The award organisers also reserve the right to not award a category if circumstances deem it necessary.

Finalists will be notified of the finalist status by email and phone. Winners will not be announced until the Awards Ceremony & Dinner.

Please note that details of your nominations are kept confidential. ASIAL staff processing the nominations and members of the judging panel are required to sign a Deed of Confidentiality. The content of your nomination is never shared publicly.
