The Awards Process

Stage One

Written submissions will be assessed and scored according to criteria. Please ensure that you follow the particular criteria for the category you have chosen.

Stage Two
Project teams from each of the shortlisted entries will be invited to present to the judging panel in person. The short interview normally consists of a 10-15 minute presentation followed by questions. The panels comprise healthcare specialists and representatives of the judges.
