Once the awards have closed. The judging packs are put together and sent to our judges which are made up of our sponsors and chaired by a member of the BID along with special guest judges.

The judges will read through all of the entries independently and select their top three in every category. The panel of judges will then come together and use a points system to select their winners and finalists.

Any sponsors that have entered into the awards are forbidden for judging in that category.

Any sponsors with personal relationships with entries or are unable to judge them impartially are also asked to abstain from the judging to ensure that it is a fair and robust process.

All entries must come from within a 5-mile radius of Chippenham (SN15 3HU)
