Judges



Manx Accountancy Awards judges represent the very best of the accredited professionals. Our focus is to deliver a balanced judging assessment from leaders who bring their extensive knowledge, enthusiasm and expertise to the judging process.The judges are bound by a strict confidentiality agreement. Each and every judge is required to declare any conflict of interest in entries over which they deliberate and are instructed to stand aside from deliberations concerning those entries. Judges give their time for free to judge the awards and to pore over the entries, across all stages of the awards selection process. 

Meet Our Judges


Our Judging Process


The make-up of our judging panel changes from year to year, reflecting the ever-evolving nature of the industry itself. Our closely vetted panel comes together on the yearly judging day for lively debates on our hotly contested categories ensuring each entry is vetted against our strict criteria and high standards.

  • Following the deadline, after all submissions have been received, all entries will be sent to judges for the first round of review. Every entry is provided in the same format and without any material that goes against the terms and conditions.
  • judges give their free time to participate in the judging process.
  • Judges with conflicts of interest in categories will not participate in the judging of those categories.
  • Entries will be carefully scrutinised with the best selected to go forward to the shortlist for each category.
  • Judges score each entry according to the criteria of each category.
  • They then meet to discuss their scores and make a final decision during a single day of judging, based on the contents of the written or video entry.
  • The judging process is confidential and all decisions are final.
  • The shortlist of finalists will be published on the Awards' website.
  • Judges are divided into a minimum of two panels, ensuring any potential conflict is avoided.
  • The judges will score each of the entries allocated to them against a predetermined set of scores.
  • Scores are then collected and collated, with the entrant receiving the highest overall score being declared the winner of that category.
  • Feedback is provided for winning entries, however, due to the high volume of entries, feedback cannot be provided for anyone else.
