Our judges are a diverse and international group of foresight experts, activists, users, innovators and commissioners. They have been invited to join the judging panels due to their deep committment to the values of the Awards, and beacuse of their sense of adventure in supporting the next generation. You can read more about individual judges below.
We have a three-stage process for judging.
Winners and awardees will be notified when judging closes in July and prior to public announcement.
All applicants will receive feedback on their application. However, the level of feedback will depend on how far through the judging process the application progresses, and how much feedback is shared by individual judges.
We're working hard to get our judging panel ready for this years' awards. Stay tuned for updates.
In the meantime, we would like to say a massive thank you to our fabulous and supportive panel of judges from 2019.
