BIMA Awards 2016 - Call For Judges
Thank you for your interest in judging the BIMA Awards 2016 – if you are accepted onto the panel, you'll be in good company. A seat on the judging panel of the BIMAs is highly prized – for its kudos, high-level networking opportunities and the chance to gain an overview of the best digital work taking place in Britain right now.
We're accepting applications up until midnight on Friday 5th February and will notify you of the outcome by the end of February.
To complete the application process you will need an up-to-date bio (no more than 1000 characters with spaces – approx 150 words) and hi res headshot (jpg). This is so we can list you as a judge on the BIMA Awards website in the event that your application is successful.
Judge Entry Form
Please be aware that there is a time commitment involved in judging the BIMAs. You must be available to attend the Judging Day in central London on Wednesday 13 July and we also encourage attendance at a briefing evening for judges on the evening of Wednesday 18 May. In addition, the first phase of judging takes place online and can be completed at a time that suits you within a four-week period running from 30 May to 24 June. All up, the online judging will take a minimum of 12 hours.
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.
