Stage 3: Judging
A team of 3 judges are allocated to each of the seven entry categories and they will judge each of the shortlisted entries in their category and will select an overall winner. The judges will review, assess and score the annual reports on the same six areas used in Stage 1 but the focus of the assessment in this stage is on the quality, clarity and consistency of the story being told in the annual report. The judges will also use the scores and commentaries from Stage 1 and the technical assessments in Stage 2 in their deliberations to select the overall winner for each category.
In 2022, the format for the judging the shortlisted larger organisations, Categories 6 and 7, will be different from previous years. The judges in these 2 categories will be focusing on two key areas of the annual report, how the organisation has communicated in its annual report the impact it is making for its beneficiaries and how the organisation has addressed the risks facing the organisation.
