Our judging has two stages, in the first stage you go onto our entry page and enter your chosen category, you can enter a maximum of three categories, please give as much information as possible. The judges will read through all of the entries independently, along with industry experts and members of the Western Daily Press team. Judges then submit their scores and our top three finalists in each category are then decided by a matrix scoring system.

Once our finalists have been decided judges will go out to visit each finalist, it is up to the individual judge if they make themselves known to you or not. They will then decide the winner from the visits to the finalists and these will be revealed at the awards ceremony in May.

Entering the awards is a great way to look back at past successes. Entering and winning awards is…

• Really motivating for your staff

• A great way to stand out from the competition

• A good way of seeing how far your business has come

• A great way of getting extra coverage and publicity for your business
