We are proud to be announcing our 21 judges which will be working as part of our new select judging panel this year!
For the 2023 awards, the votes will be weighted 50/50 by fans and judges: an average rank for every finalist will be taken from the order of votes by fans votes across our website, Twitter, and Instagram, and the order of votes decided by our select judging panel. The channel, creator or organisation with the highest average ranks for each category will win the Gold, Silver and Bronze award for that category.
Entry and judgement on deciding the winners are based on a mixture of fan and judge votes.
- Judges pick their top 3 choices in each category which have different scoring for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. These are then grouped together and adjudicated with all judges.
- The fan votes can be cast via our website and across our social platforms, where numbers are expected to be over 500,000.
- The votes, both fan and judges, are then grouped by the percentage split gained from fans and judges to determine the overall winners of which there is a Gold, Silver and Bronze award for each category.
Our judges have a wide breadth of experience in the world of football content and have are distinguished representatives of various dimensions of the industry, from senior executives at world-renowned football clubs to esteemed sports broadcasters, and even include a number of fellow content creators who know exactly what it takes to thrive in this industry. Where there is potential for conflict of interest in a particular category, judges will be asked to abstain from voting.
