  • Judging panel members are required to keep their membership on the panel confidential until the voting process has concluded. 
  • Any judging panel member whose current or recent employer, affiliate, partner, or other associated entity who has a submission in a given category is not permitted to cast any vote on any submission in that category. 
  • Any judge who is found to have breached confidentiality or an undisclosed conflict of interest will be removed from the panel and their votes voided.
