The Judging Process

The Motor Trader Industry Awards has a highly experienced panel of judges chosen for their independence and expertise in motor retailing. Judges include the Motor Ombudsman, trade body representatives, business journalists, some with decades of experience in the motor trade. Highly experienced suppliers are also represented.


Retail Categories

Entrants are asked to submit responses to entry questions and a range of supporting material that should be tailored to the criteria for each category. Judges will review each entry, scoring every nomination on their own, individual merit against the category criteria. 

Our judging panel will then meet to to discuss their findings and scores, awarding the finalists and winners for 2022!


Supplier Categories

For the supplier categories, entrants are asked to submit responses to a range of questions to form their initial entry. Entrants will then be invited to carry out a presentation and Q&A pitch in a Dragon's Den type format with a select group of judges from the panel. 

Entrants are required to conduct a presentation to meet the category criteria and showcase why they should win the award to our expert panel of judges. Presentation slots will be held between Tuesday 6th September - Thursday 8th September. Please ensure a representative has availability during these dates to present to our panel. Presentations will take place on a virtual platform and you will be contacted with your date and time slot ahead of the judging period.


Submit your entry today and you could make it through to the 2022 shortlist, and celebrate your win at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane on Wednesday 23rd November in front of your peers.
