From early morning on 28 September, jury members began poring through thousand entries and discussing their choices with fellow jurists all of whom are impassioned creatives and leaders in their fields. PrintWeek Awards is the only awards which evaluates four samples in each category; so the jurists can look at a body of work during the year as a benchmark, plus award points for pioneering work and innovations.
