Judges for the IMRO Radio Awards have been selected on the basis of their relevant experience and expertise in the radio industry. They are required to judge each entry in its entirety. There are three judges for each category of the Awards. The mp3 entries are allocated to each judge for consideration over a six week period following which they meet as a group to decide the short list and winner. No judge is aware of the other judges of their category and each judging session is chaired by an independent Chair.
Judging will be based solely on the entry submitted, in an independent and objective manner and NOT on the programmes aired throughout the year.
The judges will be looking at the following criteria, to the extent that they are relevant, when listening to entries. The weighting of the criteria will vary from category to category.
