Judging process

The judging process.

The judging process for the Constructing Excellence SECBE Awards is rigorous. We hold our judges to the highest standards of fairness, accuracy, and integrity.

Our expert judges - details available soon - have a passion for the principles and themes of our awards & demonstrate exceptional leadership ability and vision.

We have two rounds of judging:

  1. Shortlisting is based on the written submission. Every entry is evaluated carefully & equally to determine our finalists.
  2. Judging interviews: our finalists are invited to give a short presentation to one of our seven judging panels.
    • Wednesday 2 & Thursday 3 June 2021

Throughout the judging process, we make every effort to avoid conflicts of interest and we assign at least four judges to each entry.

Judging - interviews

Dates: Wednesday 2nd and Thursday 3rd of June 2021

Location: Online

Interviews will be conducted online.  

We have 14 categories with the potential for over 80 presentation teams to be involved in interviews with our judging panels. These will be held over two days. We will have seven judging panels comprised of at least four judges.

Finalists are allocated a 20-minute slot to convince the judges that their project/organisation/individual is really special. They are invited to give a 10-minute presentation and prepare to spend a further 10 minutes responding to questions.

Please make sure you keep both these days free.  You will be advised of your date and time in April once finalists have been announced and scheduling complete.

Thank you to Fladgate for sponsoring the Judging Day.
