The CN & NCE Inspiring Women in Construction & Engineering Awards has a rigorous judging process to decide our winners. Applications will be considered by a panel of judges including representatives from New Civil Engineer, Construction News and our supporting partners. These judges will review entries to determine the shortlist and then convene in a roundtable discussion, to select the winners for that category.  

Each stage is designed to provide a fair and transparent process. Please note, you will be judged on your written entry alone, so make sure you include as much supporting evidence as possible and make it clear in your entry why you should win.

Stage 1: Online Judging – once the entry phase closes, the judges will review online and score each submission to determine the shortlist.

Stage 2: Roundtable discussion – once the shortlist is announced, all finalists will be reviewed again by our judging panel to select the winner. Please see below a reminder of key dates.
