The judging process is anonymous and confidential. To ensure anonymity in judging, no names of applicants or collaborating parties may appear on submitted images, drawings or written support materials.
Jurors and their practices are not permitted to enter the Eat Drink Design Awards in the year they are participating in the program. Jurors must declare any other perceived conflict of interest regarding an entry and step down from the panel for assessment of that entry.
At the jury’s discretion, entries may be recognized for demonstrating exemplary standards in their category beyond those outlined in the category requirements, or to reflect the changing nature of design practice.
The Jury reserves the right to re-classify the project to a more appropriate category, if deemed necessary.
Jury decisions are final and no correspondence will be entered into.
