The Process

Your Birmingham PA Awards committee will each receive a copy of the application forms after the closing date and individually score them, these scores will then be collated and the highest scoring candidates will be shortlisted and announced to the next stage

The telephone interview stage is a more informal part of the process, however further points will be added after this stage to those of the application, the highest scoring candidates will then go through to the next stage

The Judges who will hold the highest proportion of scores throughout the whole process will add their scores which then determine the winners which will be announced on 19th July 2019
