Ringwood Business Awards Judges

The Ringwood Business Awards are judged by a group of independent judges. The process is entirely online and the judges do not know who the other judges are. They receive a brief and a copy of the entries and recommendations/nominations plus a voting spreadsheet. They vote in each category for their first choice, second and so on. They return the spreadsheet which is fed into the master sheet which tells us who are the winners.
