An independent panel of recognised and expert judges, representing Ireland's accountancy profession, will determine the winners of the Irish Accountancy Awards.
Our focus is to deliver a balanced judging assessment from leaders who will bring their extensive knowledge, enthusiasm and expertise to the judging process ensuring that the winning entries are truly outstanding and worthy of receiving an Irish Accountancy Award.
The panel is carefully selected to ensure the awards' judging process is fair and objective. The Judges are bound by a strict confidentiality agreement and are required to declare any conflict of interest in entries over which they deliberate, in which case that entry will be reallocated. The integrity of this process lies at the very heart of all that we do.
A comprehensive judging process has been put together to decide the worthy winners of the Irish Accountancy Awards.
