Once the nominations period closes on 14th September, all paper nominations are collected from around the islands. These are then put together with the online nominations and any corporate submissions we receive.
A panel of judges then 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 in September 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.
