How the awards are judged

The Education Resources Awards are independently judged by a panel of expert judges, comprising teaching professionals renowned for their experience and knowledge of products and resources within the education sector. Each entry will be independently and impartially judged on its own merits, with complete confidentiality to select the winners for each of the individual awards categories. The judges will place an entry in a more appropriate category if they think it is applicable.

Closing date for entry 2025 is 27th February 2025.

Please read this guidance carefully and let us know as soon as possible if you have any questions.

The Judging Process        

Working individually, judges will be asked to review your entry submission and score it against the judging criteria. To do this they will use your entry form, your website, and any supporting material you have submitted.

Please ensure when you submit your entry , that you have clearly  provided answers to the requested category criteria within your written submission text, so that our judges will easily be able to locate this information.

Since judges will not have access to a physical copy of your product, could you please also supply the following to assist them:

Login details and instructions for any online products

A video demonstration for any physical product would be very helpful for our judges – but is not compulsory, If you would like to submit, then please ensure that your video is  –

• Max 3 mins in length

• This demo does NOT need to be a slick marketing video; it can be as simple as one person explaining to camera how to use your product. It can be recorded on your phone or via zoom.

• Please submit as a link to an externally hosted platform such as YouTube or Vimeo, or to a website where the video is hosted. Please do not send large video files.

Once all presentations have been viewed, the judges will then deliberate together and make their final decisions for each category.

The finalists will be announced on 19th March 2025 and the winners unveiled at our gala awards ceremony on 15th  May  2025 at the National Conference Centre. Birmingham. For more information or help please email Chris Milton or Karin Allfree or call on 01622 474 011
