The BIBAs - Judging panel search!

Posted: 20/01/2021

We are in the process of planning this year’s BIBAs and we are reaching out to  leading figures from Lancashire’s business community to volunteer their time to join the  BIBA’s 2021 judging panels. 

To become an official judge is not for the faint-hearted and requires a minimum commitment of three days for interview sessions and training.  Judges must also be committed to helping us maintain a robust, transparent and comprehensive judging process and agree to the judging rules and criteria. 

Clearly, COVID-19 is causing disruption to our daily working lives and therefore face-to-face interviews and the BIBAs on Tour will not be able to go ahead. Therefore, for this year only, all interviews will take place via Zoom where each interview will last 1 hour.  Judges will be expected to judge between 8 to 12 businesses over a two day period.  Judges are required to commit to both judging dates which have been set,  in addition to attending the training session as detailed on the attached schedule.  Before you take a decision please check that the dates are convenient.

Closing date for judges applications is Friday 29th January 2021.  

If you are interested in joining the judging panels, please contact me via  email  indicating your preferred category as featured on the attached schedule.  We will attempt to accommodate you preference – although at this stage it cannot be guaranteed. 

Please Note:  Entrants are prohibited from applying to be a judge.
