The Adjudication Panel

The Deals Awards Adjudication  process starts once nominations close on February 24, 2017 when each nomination will be independently adjudicated by a panel of selected experts.

This panel will produce a shortlist in each category during the month of March.

Winners in all categories except those of Deal of the Year and Dealmaker of the Year will be agreed prior to the Awards Evening and announced at the Awards Dinner.

Judging decisions are final and no correspondence will be entered into.
