Logistics Achiever Awards - Judging Process

The Achiever Award judging process will operate as follows:
Step One:

Log on to www.logisticsachieverawards.co.za to submit your completed Entry Form as soon as possible, in order for your entry to be logged onto the Entry Schedule and to ensure that you are kept informed of all activities relating to the 2017 competition

At this stage you could be contacted by one of the judges for an initial assessment of your entry.

Should you have any problems or questions, please contact the Custodian of LAA Dianne Holton at dianne@logisticsnews.co.za

Step Two:

The Entry Guideline Template, plus any supporting documentation which you deem necessary to be submitted via the internet site by latest 30th July 2017.

Step Three:

Either the Chairman, or another member of the Judging Panel will contact you to arrange a site visit (First Cycle) at a suitably convenient time for the group of Judges.

On this visit, you will be expected to elaborate on your Entry Template details, demonstrate what you have undertaken with respect to your entry, and answer any questions that the Judges may feel appropriate to your entry.

A visit will take between 2 - 4 hours depending on the nature of the entry. You are welcome to include whomever you want in your presentation team, but please ensure that you address the core issues relating to your entry, and leave sufficient time for questions and a site tour.

It is more difficult to co-ordinate site visits for non-Gauteng entries, due to the travel arrangements required, so please try to be as flexible on the timing arrangements for these as possible.

Sample Score Sheets are available to enable you to be aware of what the Judges are looking for. Should you have any questions during the visit, please do not hesitate to raise them during the Judge’s visit.

Please note that, due to the fairly tight deadlines involved in the competition, these visits cannot be delayed indefinitely without jeopardising your chances.

The Judges will be signing a confidentiality agreement with Logistics News regarding all information supplied to them in respect of their judging role in this competition. Should you wish the Judges to sign your own company confidentiality agreement, please have it ready and waiting at the time of the visit for signing.

As this is essentially a fact finding visit, no feedback relating to the entries status in the competition will be provided. Any comments made by the Judges will be based on their personal opinions only.

Step Four:

In order to expose a sufficient number of Judges to your entry, short listed entrants will be required to present to the Judging Panel in Johannesburg during August (dates to be advised) Each entrant will be allowed approximately 30 minutes for this presentation and 15 minutes for questions and discussion

Step Five:

Short-listed companies or all finalists may be called by a representative of Logistics News to arrange for photographs to be taken. These may be used at the Banquet as an introduction to your entry.

Step Six:

You will be required to attend the black tie Achiever Awards Ceremony to be held in October for which there will be a charge of approximately R10 000.00 for a table of 10 guests.

All the winners will be announced, along with the presentation of Awards at this event
