Sponsors who enter the awards are not eligible to judge any categories in which they are entrants.
Entrants may be required to be available for a short interview with the judging panel during September.
The judging process will determine a number of entrants that will be inclided in the People's Choice awards.

The People's Choice voting will run for the month of October.
