Thank You Judges

Let’s take a moment to give a big round of applause to our amazing panel of judges who went above and beyond to dive deep into the submissions. We can’t thank them enough for their dedication and commitment to making these awards a success.

Their hard work and tireless efforts have made it possible for us to showcase the best of the best in the industry. We are beyond grateful for their contribution and enthusiasm.

So, next time you see them in Prague, or anywhere else along the way, make sure to show them some love and appreciation. Trust us, they deserve it!

The Judging Process

The judging process for the Way Up North Awards is both rigorous and fair. We have a panel of five esteemed judges who take the time to meticulously rank all of the submissions based on a set of criteria.

To ensure anonymity and impartiality, all submissions are renamed with anonymous names such as “ENTRY 123”. This way, the judges don’t know whose work they are evaluating, and everything remains unbiased.

After all of the submissions have been evaluated, the judges’ scores are compiled and averaged to determine the winners. This thorough and impartial process ensures that the most deserving submissions are recognised and celebrated at Way Up North in Prague.
