Who are the judges?

The Mobile Team Awards will be judged by a panel of 15 independent mobile industry experts with experience of managing teams, setting strategies, and monitoring performance. They will be completely independent of Mobile News. We will announce the judging panel in mid-October.

How will they judge?

The judges will all access the entry portal through their own unique IDs. They will not know how the other judges are scoring the entries and every entry they see will be identical in format. They will read the criteria question answers and allocate a score for each entry. They will also view supporting material to help their understanding of your team and project.

What the judges will be looking for

The judges will be looking for clear objectives, creative and effective implementation and tangible and demonstrable results. They will also consider the structure, presentation and clarity of each entry. The will want to see evidence of great teamwork, effective implementation and tangible results.
