After the closing date for submissions, all nominations that have been accepted will be reviewed by members of the Awards Judging Panel, comprising senior industry figures, with diverse backgrounds, all of whom are experts in their particular fields.

How the Judging Process Works

Judging will be based on the strength of the submissions together with a review of the nominee’s activities in the area covered by the award.

Members of the judging panel independently inspect each entry and rate them from 1 to 3 based on their respective judging criteria. The entries that fare best through this process will be included on category-specific shortlists which will be announced on the Maritime Standard website on 14th September 2017. Entrants will also be notified by email if they have been shortlisted for an Award.

The shortlisted entries will then be further evaluated by the Chairman of the judging panel to determine the final winners. In the event of a tie, the Chairman is authorised to cast a tie-breaking vote. The Maritime Standard will select a diverse body of judges who we feel are objective, respected and knowledgeable and are capable of representing the voice of the industry.

Winners will be announced at the 23rd October, 2017 Award Ceremony and Gala Dinner.

By submitting your entry for The Maritime Standard Awards, all individuals, companies and organisations herein agree to accept the final decision of the Panel of Judges. The rulings and decisions of the Judges are final and binding.
