Global Awards 2022

About the judging panel

All awards entries are reviewed and scored by a panel of volunteer judges. From 2018, judges are appointed for a period of three years. At the end of this term, judges may stand for re-election to continue as a judge for a further three-year period.

The chair of the judging panel is typically elected from within the existing judging panel for a period of three years with an option to serve for a further period of up to three years as chair.

Judges will typically be Chartered Chemical Engineers or equivalent and subject matter experts.

Membership of IChemE is not a pre-requisite to serving on the judging panel (except for the role of chair).

The judging panel is typically reviewed in December/January.
