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 mid-February 2021 and will be featured in the Spring 2021 edition of the magazine.
