All entry forms will be read and scored by a panel of judges, they will take into account any supporting evidence and will score each question on the entry from individually.
The highest scoring entries in each category will be selected and the shortlist will be announced on 1st December 2017.
Judges will meet to decide the shortlisted entries and then agree the winner for each category.
Only the BFFF People Awards judges and organising team will see your entries. All judges will sign confidentiality agreements prior to receiving your entries.
Judges will be looking for evidence that an individual has gone above and beyond their role in order to achieve benefit for their organisation or the wider frozen food industry.
Organisations participating in the judging process are entitled to enter the awards but will absent themselves from any discussion involving their organisation or any organisation in which they have an interest.
The Chairman of the Judges' decision is final and no negotiations will be entered into.
