  • The panel reserves the right to consider repositioning entries across categories.

  • Each entry will be judged in the defined category using the criteria listed and assigning the points allocated. Parking Today Media reserves the right to re-categorize entries if deemed appropriate.
  • The entries will be sorted by category entered and classification. Each category will be assigned to a panel of judges who will assess the entries independently. The Judges will make their assessment online and scores will be averaged for a final score out of 100 points.
  • To reach finalist stage a minimum score of 70 will need to be achieved. The top scoring entries in each category will determine the winning recipient of that award. In the case of tied scores, both entries would receive the same level award.
  • Each Judge is encouraged to not only score but provide written feedback so that this can be presented to the nominee’s post awards. Judges details will not be revealed unless the particular judge requests this.
  • The Chair of Judges has the right to assign a submission to another category if they believe this is appropriate to do so.
