In this exclusive video hear from some of our judges on what they look for in an entry and also what to avoid

 

While judging day 2020 may not be the same as last year when this video was filmed, a few of our judges share what gives an entry the best chance of winning a coveted Channel Award.  You also get to see how judging day usually works and how much effort and discussion goes into picking the winners. 

In appearance order on the video, the judges are: 

Sara Yirrell, consulting editor at CRN

Bob Tarzey - freelance IT industry analyst and head of vendor judging panel

Denise Bryant - channel sales leader and industry veteran

Simon Meredith - lead consultant at Channelstar Media and head of reseller panel

June Thomson - former sales director, Business Partner organisation at IBM

Ian Kilpatrick - founder Kirian International ltd, and industry veteran

The entry deadline for the 2020 Awards is Monday 10 August at 5pm. Entries this year can be as basic as needed - Covid-19 has put time restraints on us all.
