How are the awards judged?

The Petplan & ADCH Animal Charity Awards are judged by an impartial and independent panel of key industry representatives

The judging panel put their own industry knowledge and experience to the test as they discuss and agree who the finalists and winners in each category should be. Petplan has no involvement in the judging process.

How the finalists and winners are selected

From the thousands of nominations received, the judges have a very difficult task to narrow down the shortlist to just three finalists in each category. The finalists are all invited to attend the awards ceremony where the winners are announced.

The judges specifically look for clear examples of:

  • Exceptional levels of care and compassion
  • Outstanding knowledge, expertise and communication
  • Those that go above and beyond their duties to improve animal welfare

The role of selecting the finalists and winners is an extremely tough job. The quality of nominations received is always extremely high and we are sure that this year will be no exception!
