Stage one: Application forms are reviewed by the judging panel. Judges are looking for passion and enthusiasm, alongside any examples of recent successes. Your application form will be assessed alongside your website, social media, and review sites to gain an understanding of you and your business. A shortlist of finalists will be selected.
Stage Two: Additional data will be collected via an independent judging visit. This could include a site visit, phone interviews and a review of social media. The judge will score the business against identified performance criteria. These reports will be made available to finalists free of charge following the announcement of winners.
