A panel of expert judges from a wide range of industries and locations throughout NSW will judge the entrants of each award category based on their online submission. There are two judges per category, and they will independently review and score the responses for each entry in their assigned categories. The businesses or individuals with the highest score in their category will be named the winner.
Finalists represent the top 3-5 entries by category depending on the number of entries received, and how close the scoring is.
This award recognises a business that is considered as the very best of all the winners of all the award categories. The award is chosen by the three previous winners of the Carillon Business of the Year winners based on the quality of their awards submission.
