The Open Peer Awards consist of three award categories – Corporate Responsibility, Customer Engagement and People & Performance.
Each of the three categories comprises a number of sub-categories that are confirmed shortly before the conference, each of which should have between three and six shortlisted finalists.
At the Awards Ceremony we declare a winner for each category and each sub-category, for each of the main sectors represented, and for each judging criterion. There is also an award for the overall winner.[/callout1]
The three categories each have their own special conference day where the entries are judged, each has its own section in the supplement in The Independent, each will have its own section at The Times website, and each has its own winner and sub-category winners.
These are the likely sub-categories within each category.
