How Were The VOX Awards Judged?
Firstly: Your judging panel remained a closely guarded secret until the awards ceremony. This is so that no potential 'friendship' voting could take place, and no entrants could ask industry friends or colleagues to vote for them. Suffice it to say that the judging panel comprised of a group of relevant industry professionals at the top of their game.
Secondly: All judging took place individually and with no potential to see other judges scores. This was so that no 'historical' voting could take place, where a judge's score was affected by seeing another judges high, or low score.
Thirdly: None of the other judges knew who the other judges were, and this was done to stop any 'collusion' voting, so judges couldn't rig votes, nor discuss nominees with other judges.
Why are we judging like this? Awards are only worth something if they are earned by their merits and have no possibility of corruption. We have provided a fair judging platform which will allow the VOX Awards to be without question - and will show you how the awards were judged on the night!
