ACIA takes the judging of its awards process very seriously as this is pivotal to the awards being viewed as credible and professional. The awards are judged by an independent panel of experts that are highly respected in their field, as well as previous ACIA award winners.
Judges for the 2010 ACIA Awards were as follows:
Entries are judged against all of the awards criteria, with nominees receiving a score of between 1 and 5, depending on the level of evidence provided. There are extra points available for outstanding achievement in any one criterion. Entries also receive a score between 1 and 10, based on the measurable impact of the analysis on the nominee’s organisation or the wider community.
All of the judges use the same scoring methodology and the collated results are then normalised using a statistically robust methodology to ensure consistency. Where there is any significant disagreement in scoring a standardisation meeting may be held.
