memcom membership excellence awards – judging week!

All award entries for the 2019 memcom membership excellence awards are now in and we’re currently preparing for our judges’ meetings which are taking place this week and next.


Who are the memcom judges this year?


EMMA WILCOX Chief Executive, Society for the Environment

The memcom awards are independently judged by a panel of esteemed sector leaders, verified as experts in their field. Each judge is assigned entries that match their area of expertise. We select a diverse panel of judges who we feel can be objective. Judges are barred from judging any entry with which they have a personal or professional affiliation or any other conflict of interest.

How are the entries judged?


The judging process is entirely independent of the management of the awards in order to ensure complete integrity.


Our panel of judges carefully review each submission against given criteria. Criteria differ between categories and these were included on the entry forms. Judges can also make notes to justify their ratings.


Judges work in small groups or pairings on each award, ensuring each entry is evaluated by more than one person, and the groups then focus on agreeing a majority decision.

What are the next steps?


The shortlist for all awards will be announced on March 20th at the memcom awards shortlist party. All shortlisted entrants will then be emailed directly from memcom and an announcement will feature on our social channels and ebulletin.


Winners will be announced at the memcom awards dinner and ceremony which will be taking place in Bishopsgate, London on Thursday 20th June during the evening. Tickets for the awards dinner and daytime conference (same date and location) can now be purchased from our events page on Eventbrite.
