If I am a judge, can I still submit entries for the Awards?
Putting forward a judge for the BIMA Awards 2016 does not preclude a company/agency from entering the Awards. Judges are asked to declare, and not to vote on, any items presented to them for judging in which they have an interest. The totals will be adjusted to accommodate any votes that cannot be cast.
