Apply to judge the LI Awards

Judging a category at the LI Awards is an opportunity to see the work of the best of the profession, to meet other industry leaders, and to contribute to the ongoing success of the Awards.

Each category is judged by a panel of 3-5 judges (including a Chair), made up of LI members and industry experts with relevant expertise to that category. We encourage you to apply if you believe that your experience will bring value to a specific category, especially if you have previous experience of judging similar awards or competitions.

If you are selected as a judge, you will be expected to attend the judging weekend at Roffley Park near Horsham on Friday evening 6th September and Saturday 7th September 2019. At the judging weekend, you’ll review the entries for your category, along with the other members of your judging panel. Your panel will come to a decision and provide brief comments on each submission.

If you are judging the Student Dissertation category, you will need to read the dissertations ahead of the judging weekend.

As a thank you, judges will receive a free ticket to the Awards Ceremony on November 28th.

Applications to judge the Awards close at midnight on July 31st 2019.
