A separate panel of judges, organised by the sponsoring company, will adjudicate each of the categories in the Awards. You do NOT have to be a supplier or a customer of any of the category sponsors to enter. Each panel contains representatives from the sponsoring company, plus an independent expert judge. This panel will draw up a short-list of entrants and will visit each finalist’s business or workplace. Or, the panel may call the short-listed finalists to their premises to be judged.
A member of the British Baker team then joins each of the final judging panels to help decide the finalists, who will take the trip to the awards ceremony in London, as well as the overall category winner. A company may enter more than one category, BUT different company representatives must enter each of the chosen categories. No one person can enter more than one category.
The judging process commences at the end of May and will be completed by the end of June 2017, with all finalists being announced by the end of July 2017.
