Our judging is carried out by an independent panel of industry experts, selected for their impartiality, experience and suitability for each category. The initial judging will be based on the information you provide on your online entry form along with website, social media and any third party sites.

For 2021/22 judges will be looking for evidence of recent customer reassurance within their online presence as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Selected businesses may be visited (or mystery shopped) by independent judges. Please note that is a requirement of entry that entrants agree to waive or refund the direct costs of the mystery visit.

Eligible winners may be selected to represent Liverpool City Region at the VisitEngland Awards scheduled to take place in June 2022.
