Judging

Best in Biz Awards is unique in that only writers and journalists for business, financial, trade and technology publications, as well as broadcast outlets and analyst firms, serve as judges. In fact, Best in Biz Awards is the only business awards program judged by independent members of the press and industry analysts. Having researched and covered countless successful companies, these judges have the expertise to objectively evaluate the entry pool to choose the top companies, teams, executives and products from among the submissions.

As in prior years, judges returning to the judging panel from prior years will be announced during the regular entry period (late January-early February 2017), and the complete judging panel will be officially revealed during the late entry period (March-April 2017).

More info on the judging process

Entries in each category are judged by at least five media and industry analyst judges, with each judge providing scoring and other feedback. Scores are combined and averaged to determine gold, silver and bronze winners in each category. Depending on category popularity and competition scoring, multiple silver and bronze winners may be awarded in a single category. In addition, based on scoring metrics, not all categories will result in winners in each of the gold, silver, and bronze positions.Mornin
