Middle East Event Awards – Judging Criteria

Judging Criteria

Judging Process

In 2023, we introduced a second round of judging for a few select categories, and since we received overwhelmingly positive feedback and impressive outcomes from this enhancement, we’re extremely proud to announce that in 2024, all categories will undergo a dual-round evaluation.

First Round of Judging: During the initial round, our panel of expert judges will carefully review each entry based on predefined criteria through the secured online awards platform, narrowing down the field to select the shortlisted candidates. A shortlist for each category will be drawn from the judges’ aggregate scores from all the judges for each entry, and up to five top-scoring entries in each category will form each shortlist. The jury will unanimously decide whether to shortlist fewer or more than 5 entries. 

Second Round of Judging: Following the shortlist announcement, our dedicated Awards team will reach out to the shortlisted candidates for a more in-depth assessment, which will include interviews and additional evaluations. This comprehensive dual-round approach ensures a robust and objective evaluation, recognizing excellence and upholding the integrity of our awards program.  

The judges’ decisions are final. Awards will be made at the discretion of the judges, and no correspondence will be entered regarding the results.
