A lot of care is taken when selecting our judging panel.  We work hard to ensure the judging of the Construction Marketing Awards remains impartial. We take care when allocating  judging responsibilities for award categories, ensuring there is no conflict of interest with the judges for those entries.

Chair of the CMA Judging Panel

Holly Waters-Marsh
Head of Marketing

Judging is a two-step process. With Judges reviewing entries online, and assessing against a set criteria. The next step is a formal judging meeting where this assessment is reviewed for fairness. This meeting is overseen by the Chair of Judges to ensure impartiality. During all stages judges are only able to view entries for their allocated category. At no point are they able to view entries from other categories. This ensures judging remains impartial.

On some categories there is a formal face-to-face judging interview in addition to the online review and judges meeting. If a category is subject to this process it will be clearly indicated.

In addition to the judging panel, the Construction Marketing Awards also utilises an Advisory Board. The CMA Advisory Board comprises of a group of volunteers, chosen from client organisations, who advise irregularly, providing guidance on particular questions relating to the Awards as and when they arise. For example the questions could relate to category development, or oversight of claims made on the basis of performance for award entries.
