Judging Process

The evaluation and judging takes approximately 6 weeks. The judging panel may request the VSBA to organise a site visit. You will be notified if this occurs and invited to join the panel at the site to discuss the project on the ground.

The panel will assess each project under the category you have chosen but reserve the right to move it to a category they think better represents the project. As with all awards, the judge’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

All submitters will be notified as to the outcome of their submission.  All finalists will be invited to the award ceremony where the winners will be announced on 7 November 2019.
