JUDGING

HOW THE JUDGES ARE CHOSEN

EGR’s team of independent, external judges is updated each year and is selected to bring a diverse range of in-depth egaming expertise to the judging process. All judges are required to sign a disclaimer form to keep all submitted information and the winners confidential, and are obliged to declare that they have no conflicts of interest prior to judging.
The full list of judges will be published after the judging process has been completed so that there is no attempt to influence the judges as this would result in immediate disqualification from the awards.

HOW CATEGORIES ARE ALLOCATED TO THE JUDGES

Groups of judges are allocated categories, which are aligned to their specific market knowledge and avoid conflict of interest. Each group of judges have no access to the submissions or results of categories they are not involved in judging.

THE SHORTLISTING PROCESS

Awards will only be awarded in categories where two or more submissions have been received. A panel of independent, external judges decides on the shortlist prior to the submissions being sent to the final judges.

THE JUDGING PROCESS

  • The judges read and analyse the submissions. Each judge allocates a score to each individual criteria per category, as well as a brief summary of their thoughts
  • Once the above is complete, judges submit their scores
  • Once the scores are submitted the winners are then automatically calculated by our online judging platform
  • If there is no clear winner a conference call will be held by the allocated judges for that category. A Highly Commended may also be rewarded in this instance.
  • Please note that the judging period was from 13 April 2017 to 13 April 2018.

EGR does not contribute or have a vote within this process. The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony.

SUBMISSION FEEDBACK

EGR do not share individual judges’ scores and comments, however explanations for the winner of each category will be provided online after the event.

2018 HOST

Alun Cochrane

Alun Cochrane is a Scottish-born no-nonsense comedian who specialises in funny nonsense. Much of his comedy begins simply as something he's seen, heard or felt in his own life, or in the street, or the kitchen, or anywhere and from that it blossoms into a highly amusing anecdote or a strange flight of fancy.

He has several television appearances to his name, most recently Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow and he's also often seen on 'Eight out of Ten Cats' and 'Mock The Week' and has also appeared on 'Soccer AM' and 'Live At The Comedy Store'.

Radio producers are also aware of Alun Cochrane's talent and he's notched up various credits from 'Just a Minute', '4 Stands Up' and 'The Now Show' to 'Clive Anderson's Chat Room'.

At the Edinburgh festival he's performed four original solo stand-up shows in the last five years to critical and audience acclaim.

Alun has a number of corporate entertainment clients who appreciate the ability to tailor his act to a specific group whilst still being extremely amusing and original - he owns several suits (at least four) and now he has a child is particularly happy to wear one of them for work of this nature!
