The 2012 Wedding Industry Awards
We are delighted to announce we are part of the judging panel for The Wedding Industry Awards 2012.
“There are some fabulous wedding suppliers out there and these awards will give them the chance to prove to potential clients how good they are“ says Sandy, Membership Director
Regardless of the size of the wedding company everyone will be treated equally in the judging process ensuring these awards are unbiased and fairly judged.
How to Enter
Entries must be received by the 31st October so don’t delay and register now if you haven’t done so already. Once you have entered the awards team will email you confirmation of your entry and your log in details. You then need to log in and create you profile that will be listed in the ‘Find a Supplier’ section of the Awards web site. Finally but not lastly contact all your cleints that were married between 01.01.10 and 31.10.11 and ask them to vote for you.
Each entrant will receive a score between 1 and 10 in each of 6 criteria. Quality of product, value for money, level of service before the wedding, level of service on the day of the wedding, level of service after the wedding and ‘recommendability’. This will give each entrant a total score out of 60 for each vote received. The average score per vote for each entrant is then calculated (If one of the criteria is not applicable to the entrant this will be taken into account).
The average score for each category is then calculated. All entrants scoring below the average score are eliminated from the competition. This process is repeated 3 times. Voter’s comments etc will then be taken into account as the judging panel reduce the remaining entrants to a shortlist for each region based on merit. Reginal winners will automatically go through to the national final. The national final will be judged by the judging panel and category experts where applicable. Interviews of all shortlisted applicants may also take place to help the judging panel build a clear impression of the entrants involved.
And the Winner is….
The winners will be announced at a party on the 18th January 2012 at Cafe de Paris.
