Individual Directors are nominated by fellow directors, senior staff members or indeed through self-nomination.

  • Following their nomination the nominee receives an email from the Awards team inviting them to participate and to provide further information, via a secure section of this website, to complete their entry.
  • The entries are initially assessed and a maximum of 10 nominees are selected in each category. These are then judged by an Awards consultant and a file on each compiled.
  • The Judging Panel then review the individual entries and decide on the Awards finalists and ultimately the winners for each of the Awards categories.
  • The winners are then invited to a presentation event.
  • The winners of the IoD East of England Director of the Year Awards then progress to the UK IoD Director of the Year Awards.

Judging decisions are final and no correspondence concerning these decisions will be entered into.
