Judging

overview

All submissions are reviewed and scored by an independent panel of industry experts, carefully selected for their knowledge, experience and leadership, and intended to represent as many disciplines and subsectors of healthcare marketing and media as possible. At no stage will MM&M staff, nor anyone else outside of the panel, influence the scoring.

Interested in Judging?

The judging will take place in two stages, using a different group of judges for each stage. In Stage One, around 60 judges will individually review and score the majority of submissions online. These preliminary scores will produce a shortlist of 15-20 finalists for each category. In Stage Two, around 40 judges assembled in New York for a day, divide into sub-groups, and discuss and score the finalists in each category. These scores will ultimately produce the gold and silver winners. Judges’ individual scores will remain confidential throughout the process, even during the discussions. This will eliminate the possibility of peer pressure, and will ensure that the judges are unable to identify the winners until they are revealed at the Awards ceremony on October 1, 2015.

To be considered as a judge for the 2015 awards, please click here and complete the application form here by March 28, 2015. We expect a lot of competition for places on the panels, so submitting an application does not guarantee a judging spot. Judging the MM&M Awards is a serious commitment and we particularly welcome applications from high-caliber individuals who are willing to devote some time to judging submissions fairly and objectively, and who are ultimately dedicated to helping us recognize the industry’s finest work.
