Stay tuned for the exciting announcement of the 2015 SC Awards Europe Judges!

2014 Awards judging panels

2014 SC Awards  Europe entry submissions were divided between our distinguished panel of independent judges (below) with judging conducted remotely and securely so that each judge could not influence others.  Each judge evaluated the products/services/companies in their category, awarded marks and commented on the submissions explaining the reasons for their marks. Our judges marked each entry against agreed criteria, and were not allowed to judge in any category where they had any known commercial association with a nominated company/person. If they, themselves, were being considered for a particular category, they did not participate in any way in the voting for that category. The entries with the highest aggregate score were declared winners in their category. In the event of a draw between two companies, the adjudicating panel of Illena Armstrong, VP Editorial, and Tony Morbin, Editor in Chief, reviewed the judges's comments to decide a winner. In these cases, and those where the scores and evaluations of the judges were exceptionally high for companies that did not win, these companies were awarded 'highly commended'.
