Judges

APEA Live

Below are the lists of the independent judges for each APEA award category in 2019*. You can expect the 2020 judging lineup to be just as good!

All APEA judges are experts in the industry and totally independent from the APEA council and committees.

All of this means that the best minds in the industry are reviewing and choosing the shortlisted entries and winners based entirely on the merits of your submissions.

Some awards call for more specific judging skills than others, particularly the Health & Safety Performance and Environmental Improvement & Sustainability awards. For these categories the judging panel is made of solely of experts in that particular field.

Having such high-profile judges on each panel also means that your entry will be studied at length and in-depth by some of the industry's most influential and important decision makers.

All you need to do to make that happen is make an entry. It's free-of-charge and takes less time than you think (plus you can save your progress and go back to it whenever you want before the deadline) - so why not get started now?
