Ghana eCommerce Awards

JUDGING

Preserving the integrity of these awards and judging purely upon excellence is the absolute priority of the Ghana eCommerce Awards. The judging process has been designed to ensure all entries are judged on their full merits, professionally and impartially.

Judges for the Ghana eCommerce Awards are handpicked by the organising team with a view to ensure that the highest standards and integrity are maintained

A panel of judges will represent a cross-section of the online business community. A Chairperson will be appointed by the organising team to oversee the judging process and ensure impartiality. It may be the case that a judge may also represent an organisation that has submitted an entry - in this event the judge will abstain from voting in that category.
