A collection of fine equestrian marketers, strategists and digital experts stand ready to judge this year's hopefuls.

To ensure transparency

Members of the Expert Panel (EP), full-time employers and organisations owned by EP members are not eligible for nomination in any category.

Businesses which employ EP members on a freelance or part-time basis may be nominated. Before finalists are announced EP members will be asked to declare any conflicts of interest; current/previous clients or; any other relationships deemed relevant. The task of judging those, will fall on other members.
