How the awards are judged

Professional Categories

The Professional categories of the Kent Wedding Awards will be independently judged after the closing date by a carefully selected, handpicked panel that comprises engaged couples from Kent and a panel of especially selected wedding, media, photographic and journalistic professionals. These carefully selected couples and panellists will – using a combination of both online and physical judging, be analysing every entry and judging from the consumers’ point of view. They will look at and read each submission and then select a shortlist for all the wedding professional categories.

Our sponsors can of course enter the awards, but will not be invited to assist with the judging and will have no access to any entries submitted, in order to ensure the process is completely private & confidential, fair and unbiased. This decision will allow them to enter the awards clear in the knowledge that each entry will be independently & impartially judged on its own merits, with complete confidentiality.

Prior to joining our judging panel each judge must sign a confidentially agreement, specifying that they must not reveal anything about the judging and applicants. They must also declare that they have no connection whatsoever with any entries or sponsors, ensuring that our judging process is completely confidential and makes for an exciting ‘reveal’ on the night of the awards. A Kentish Ceremony magazine will publish a profile page of all our professional judges if you would like to find out more.

Closing date for receipt of entries will be Monday, 30th September 2024.
