Shortlisting and judging


A judging panel of experts across Government, academia and industry will assess the nominations.

Judging criteria

Each category in the APS Data Awards will be evaluated based on four key criteria and should be considered in your response.   

  • Relevance (to the objectives of the awards program and nominated category).  
  • Originality (novel, innovative).
  • Impact (value, measurable benefits).  
  • Wider applicability (reuse, repeatability, and scalability).
