After the close of nominations at midnight on 2 April 2010, all nominations were considered by the Awards Committee.
The Awards Committee will verify entries and then produce a shortlist of not less than two (2) but not more than six (6) entries for each Category.
The shortlists for all award categories are then compiled into a dossier that is submitted to each member of the Judging Panel.
The judges will then investigate, verify and evaluate each of the shortlisted nominations before convening on 16 June 2010 in Dublin where, behind closed doors, they will make a final decision on the Winner of each Category.
The decision of the Judges is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
