Judging Criteria

All entry forms will be read and longlisted by independent assessors. A panel of judges then meets to take into account any supporting evidence and assess each question on the entry forms to determine a shortlist of finalists and the winners for each award.

The highest scoring entries in each category will be selected and the shortlist will be announced week commencing 3rd December 2018.

Please find below an example of a winning entry from the 2018 awards to assist you in your submission.

Ginny Durdy of The Ice Co. won Marketer of the Year and judges said “Ginny’s efforts have transformed a commodity category and something we can all make in our own kitchens: ice. She has created a market for a range of products which consumers are happily buying. Since Ginny entered the ice industry in 2014, consumer penetration of ice has doubled from 5.4% to 10%. This was a compelling entry.

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.
