Each of the category champions will convene panels to sift through the 100s of nominations received, and pick their top 5 (no mean feat!). The final judging panel, chaired by Shona Dunn (Civil Service Awards 2022 Champion) will pick the winners - and all the shortlisted nominations will be invited to the awards ceremony where all will be revealed.

You can find out about the Category Champion and Co-Champions on (the awards website)[].
