The 2017 judging panel was selected in September 2016. We can’t begin to express our thanks to the judges for their valuable input to the 2017 Awards.

The level of experience and musical knowledge embodied in the judging panel was very impressive.

All judging was blind, with music sent to the judges on an untitled CD.

This worked incredibly well in 2016 and was the methodology adopted for 2017 and beyond.
