About the Judging Process

The MITX Awards Judging Committee is an elite panel of over 50 judges, consisting of the region’s most prestigious technology buyers and investors, marketing thought leaders, analysts, and academia.

  • All entries are subject to a preliminary review by MITX prior to being forwarded to the judging panel. This review is to ensure:
    • The entry is in the correct category. MITX reserves the right to change the category to the benefit of the applicant.
    • The entry is complete, incomplete or late entries will be disqualified with no refund.
    • The entry meets all necessary criteria. MITX reserves the right to disqualify an entry if entry does not meet the necessary qualifications.
  • Each judge will receive a packet that includes all entry applications and accompanying materials in their assigned category for review. Judges are required to read each application thoroughly. They are provided all of the accompanying materials submitted with entry, but the decision to review them is at the judge’s discretion.
  • Each company that makes it to the final round of judging in the Technology category group must then present in person to the judging group on-site prior to the Awards ceremony on 5/25/17 (Date TBD). Each company will be required to make a presentation about product or campaign and answer judges’ questions. Judges score each entry on specific criteria using a rating scale. The final round of judging for the Marketing category group will not require a presentation and will not be done on-site at the ceremony.
