Good luck to all 2014 BBA nominees, and stay tuned for updates on other award categories!



The decision on a winning 2014 BBA entry is the result of the combined score of 5 separate judges, who independently score each submission using the same scoring matrix.

To ensure transparency, each judge independently returns his or her score sheet to the BCCJ office by November 12 2014 and the results are tabulated confidentially. The scores from each judge are then totaled for each nominee, and the nomination with the highest accumulative score is declared the category winner.

In the event of two nominees receiving the same final score, all judges will be asked to review their scores for these companies / individuals, and the submission with the highest score from this second round of judging will be declared the winner.

The final results remain confidential until the BBA ceremony, on November 14 2014.

We wish all 2014 BBA nominees the very best of luck!
