The judging process

The judging process

The judging process will be merit-based using the methods below. The Department of Commerce will coordinate an independent assessment process to review each nomination received. Judges for the awards panel are chosen for their expertise, knowledge and experience in consumer protection and media issues.

The awards panel will:

  • review all nominations;
  • request further information as necessary; 
  • interview nominees as needed; 
  • contact nominated referees as necessary; 
  • select finalists in each category; and 
  • select winners in each category.

The judging criteria are outlined within the nomination form and vary based on the award category.
