Judges are selected from major clients and industry figures and contribute valuable time and effort to work through hundreds of entries, reviewing against strict criteria and attributing scores aimed at rewarding and recognising the very best of the cooling industry.
The Cooling Industry Awards employs a rigorous judging process to determine winning entries. Each category has its own independent panel of expert judges, made up of leading industry specialists.
There is a two-stage judging process. In the first round, in order to be in with a chance of being shortlisted, you MUST answer all the questions on the entry form.
The companies/individuals who have made the shortlist will be informed by 14 June.
All finalists will present online to the judging panel. The judging will take place between 29 July – 2nd August. To ensure a fair and transparent process, no one judges a category in which they have a vested interest, neither will a competing business be judging one another. All judging takes place under Chatham House Rules and all judges sign an NDA. The final decision on a winner is made by secret ballot and no judge will know which business/individual has won until the winners are announced at The Cooling Awards on 19th September.
