Judging process

The most respected awards are usually those with the best judging process. Win or lose, we expect everyone to acknowledge that the winners are worthy of their award.

In the first round of judging, a small group of category judges will review submitted entry material and then vote in a secret ballot, ranking the top three entries for each category. Votes will be counted and verified by InsuranceERM's editorial team.

These shortlisted entries will then be put to a larger judging panel for a second round of voting by secret ballot.

All judges are senior industry experts from across Europe and the UK, each chosen for their knowledge, objectivity and credibility.

The judges' decision is final and neither InsuranceERM nor the judging panel will enter into any correspondence regarding individual entries and/or award winners.

Winners will be announced on the InsuranceERM website on 15 January 2018 and will be featured in the 2018 Spring edition of the magazine along with photos from the Awards cocktail reception which is planned for 7 February 2018 in London.


InsuranceERM and the judges recognise and respect the sensitive nature of the information submitted in the entries. Entries are not disclosed or discussed outside the judging process.

Once an entry is shortlisted, extracts from the entry summary will be sourced for inclusion in the Awards write-up and any subsequent editorial coverage. However, our editorial team may contact you for additional information should any questions arise.
