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 score the entries in a secret ballot. Votes will be counted and verified by InsuranceERM's editorial team.

The top entries in each category will be shortlisted and will be put through to a larger judging panel who will score the entries for a second round of voting by secret ballot to determine the winners.

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 in January 2019 and will be featured in the 2019 Spring edition of the magazine along with photos from the Awards gala reception which is planned for 7 March 2019 at the Tower Bridge Walkways in London.

Confidentiality

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 may be sourced for inclusion in the Awards coverage. Our editorial team may contact you for additional information should any questions arise.
