Third Sector Excellence Awards 2011: The Judging

A team of third sector experts studied the entries to choose the winners of this year's Third Sector Excellence Awards 2011

The judges were divided into six groups by their areas of expertise, ranging from digital media to charity law. They then came together for a day on 7 June in the boardroom of the Haymarket Media Group, Third Sector's parent company, to thrash out which of this year's 400 entries should win prizes.

Each entrant was given a score and some were the subject of intense and prolonged debate. Between two and six finalists were selected in each of the 23 categories. The organisation, project or individual with the highest mean average score was judged to be the winner. Entrants were awarded high commendations if their score was only a few points behind the leader.

The process of deciding the winners was far from easy - the group judging the categories on the use of digital media and websites had to reconvene on a second day to finalise its decisions.

The winner of the Luke FitzHerbert Lifetime Achievement Award was chosen by the Third Sector editorial team. The award is named after Luke FitzHerbert of the Directory of Social Change, who was its first winner. He died in a road accident in 2007.
