Judging process

The Drapers Sustainable Fashion Awards has a three-stage judging process. In the first round, to be in with a chance of being shortlisted, you MUST answer all of the questions on the entry form.

The Drapers editorial team then examine all entries against the criteria before pulling together the shortlist.

The companies/individuals who have made the shortlist will be informed no later than the end of December 2023.

The shortlist will then be deliberated by our carefully selected panel of industry judges during the Drapers Sustainable Fashion Awards judging day.

The judging process is such that it ensures that no one judges a category in which they have a vested interest, and neither will competing business be judging one another. All judging takes place under Chatham House Rule and all judges sign a non-disclosure agreement. The final decision on winners is made by secret ballot and no judge leaves the room knowing which business/individual has won.

The judging process has been honed and perfected over the years, ensuring the fairest and most robust way of deciding on the winners of these important industry awards.
