Previous Judges

Pictured below is our judging panel for the 2020 Gulf Sustainability Awards.

Having successfully completed the judge application process, they joined our expert panel to score and provide thorough feedback for Finalists and winners.

Experience and qualifications ensure we select the best judging panel possible, and many below are veterans of Awards International’s global events, having scrutinised entries at Finals in London, Amsterdam, and Dubai.

When applying to judge, they meet our specialist criteria and ensure an independent approach to deciding the deserving winners.

A growing number are now members of The Judge Club, Awards International’s new select company of experienced judges who meet to review the judging process and shape the future of scrutiny at our events.
