The entries will be assessed by a panel of judges selected by the ECCB from the eight (8) ECCB member countries.
The judging process will include: assessment of the entries; selection of a shortlist for each category; interviews with shortlisted banks and online voting scores garnered through the online voting process. Banks are allowed to encourage members of their communities to log-on and vote.
The entries will be assessed based on information provided by the banks outlining their contribution and participation in the respective categories using a points system amounting to 100 for each category. The final overall score includes:
- Online submission (75%);
- Interview (20%); and
- Online voting by the public (5%).
The bank that amasses the highest score in each category will receive the ECCU Bank of the Year Award in the respective category.
