Now the BIBAs application window is shut we will begin the process of reviewing every entry we have received.
Our team will check each entry to ensure it meets our eligibility test and then we will bench-mark each application against a special criteria.
The criteria was developed by Lancaster University Management School to benchmark the entries on an international level.
It follows a research project that aligned the BIBAs award judging infrastructure with America’s top business awards, The Stevie’s, the European Business Awards and the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise here in the UK.
The top eight entries in each category, which meet the grade will then go through to the interview stages of our awards.
