Once the nominations period closes, all paper nominations are collected from around the islands. These are then put together with online nominations and any corporate submissions we receive.
A panel of judges meets and over huge amounts of coffee and cakes, every single nomination is read. A shortlist is then produced for each category. From this shortlist, a winner is then selected. And from these winners, and overall winner is selected.
Please note that winners are not just selected due to the number of nominations they receive. Smaller businesses have just as much chance of winning as larger ones – it is quality, not quantity that matters.
If you are shortlisted, you will be contacted after the judging date and invited to our red carpet champagne awards event as our special guest. Additional tickets can be purchased so that you can invite your friends and family to see you get the recognition you deserve – these will be on sale after the shortlist has been announced.
