Hailing from Australia, USA and the United Kingdom, the Jury was provided with only the project information and pictures that were submitted. They were not aware of the SI companies involved in the projects and scored the projects on an individual basis, based on the category and budget range; and not in relation to a group of companies competing for the different categories.
In fact, the judges were not even aware who were the other members on the Jury Panel, so as to ensure complete transparency and neutrality.
Spinworkz would like to thank the judges for taking some time off their busy schedule to help with this Awards initiative.
