With preparations continuing for the 25th anniversary of the PFM Awards, the judging panel has been confirmed for this year’s event.

Following the well-established format, the judges will once again work in teams of two and visit each of the finalists within the Partnership categories of the awards.

Many of those on the PFM Awards 2018 judging panel have been involved with the awards for a number of years and have expressed how much they enjoy the process.

Each team will judge two categories, which will involve six site visits that could be located anywhere within the UK and require a considerable commitment in time and effort.

The PFM Awards would like to express its gratitude for the generous commitment provided by each of our judges, all of whom give up considerable amounts of their valuable time to ensure that the most deserving entry wins each category and ensuring that the highest levels of integrity are maintained throughout.

Following the announcement of the list of this year’s finalists in June, the judging teams will be assigned to their categories and begin to make arrangements to visit each site to interview the client and service provider.
