THE OPPORTUNITY

To ensure the awards are represented fairly, Council is seeking expressions of interest from industry professionals to form the 2022 award’s independent judging panel.

The awards' comprehensive judging process is designed to be fair, transparent, and independent of the Council, which relies on the generosity and expertise of a panel of professionals who can critically assess all application submissions.

  • Each application has five questions that will need to be assessed
  • Judging will take place online. All judges will be given a login code to the application platform 
  • Judges will score according to predetermined criteria, and the two judges’ scores will be combined 
  •  A Casey Business of the Year 2022 will be selected from the category winners based on top scores and judges' deliberations.
