How does JustGiving Awards judging work?

All nominations received are screened by a team of our staff, before being put before the official Judging Panel, appointed by JustGiving. In general, we look for outstanding examples of fundraising that have clear objectives, creative and effective implementation and tangible, demonstrable results. We will also consider the structure, presentation, and clarity of each nomination, and we will shortlist three nominations in each category to be put forward to the public vote, with the exception of our Special Recognition Award, which will only have one.

All of our judges are bound by a conflict policy.

Voting opens 1st July 2024

Mark your calendar: the finalists will be announced and voting will open on 1st July.
