Who judges the IPE Real Estate Global Awards

Comprising chiefly investment consultants, academics and former pension fund executives from around the world, the IPE Real Estate Global Awards judges are specially chosen according to their region and/or area of expertise. Up to 45 judges can be involved in the IPE Real Estate Global Awards.
 
Judging involves a two-stage review process for all the categories. The judges make use of IPE's online entry system to review and score the entries. Each judging panel features at least four judges. For the Outstanding Industry Contribution, we invite all the judges to vote on the short-listed candidates or declare Editor's Choice.
 
The first phase of the judging process invites members of each judging panel to read and score the entries according to a 20-point score matrix that ranks each against its peers, nationally, regionally and globally. We calculate an average of the judges’ scores to produce the ranking in each category.
 
The second stage close collaboration between IPE and the Chair of Judges using a set methodology to review the scores and set any rankings to help decide close results. 
 
It is inevitable in a business such as ours that conflicts of interest can occur during judging. We are confident that our judges act with honesty and integrity to ensure any conflicts of interest do not influence their views. Were a serious conflict to emerge, however, a judge may excuse him or herself from judging a particular entry. In this instance, we add an average of the other judges' scores as the conflicted judge's score.
 
The judges’ views are final. IPE does not permit or accept any correspondence or contact between the judges and entrants and/or sponsors.
