Judging - the assessment process
The Awards’ nomination process is very competitive. The assessment process comprises three distinct stages. Nominations are independently assessed against several general and category specific criteria by a combination of judging panels throughout the assessment process.
Awards judges are independent volunteers from public authorities, academia, industry and the Western Australian community.
1. Shortlisting assessment
Judging panel delegates meet to discuss and agree on individual assessments of the evaluation criteria. Recommendations are then made for up to five nominees to progress to the category assessment stage.
2. Category assessment
Nominees who are successful in getting to the category assessment stage are invited to deliver a 20-minute presentation to a judging panel at Dumas House. The Presentation guidelines provide all the information and tips required to prepare and present to the judging panel.
During this assessment phase, the judging panel choose a category winner and up to three finalists per category.
3. Overall winner assessment
Chairs of each category judging panel meet to evaluate all category winning nominations and select the overall winning nomination.
Finalists are invited to attend the Awards Ceremony in November where the Premier will acknowledge the finalists and winners from each category and the Awards’ overall winner.
