Process for judging the Awards

There are two steps in the process for appointing a winner for each category.  All entries go through a sifting process to agree the finalists.  The entries from the finalists are then considered by our panel of judges.  The decision made by the judges is final.

The winners for each category will be announced at the FAB Awards on 19 October 2017 and will be presented with an Award.  Photos will be taken at the event and we will undertake PR activity with the winners following the conference.
