Our judges across Australia, volunteer their time and expertise, and are a valuable part of the Banksia Awards experience. They assess entries for specific categories within their specialist field, and a senior panel of judges audits the results.
WE GET IT.
IT’S NOT ALWAYS ABOUT WINNING!
Each entrant receives valuable feedback about their project because supporting you is another step towards positive, sustainable action.
If you don’t make the shortlist, our judges will still help you.
Our expert panel of Judges read, score and give feedback on all entries based on criteria. From here the scores will indicate a shortlist of entries that will proceed to personal online interviews.
From the shortlist, our expert panel of judges will conduct an interview with each successful entry, where a list of questions will be asked. Each category panel will then discuss each entry and recommend and nominate who the finalists and winners are.
AWARDS GOVERNANCE COMMITTEE REVIEW
All finalists’ entries and scoring results are reviewed by the AGC and a winner from each category is ratified based on the comments and scores made by both rounds of judging.
The Awards Governance Committee provide assurance that the judging process has been followed with no conflict of interest.
