Our Awards

Our Awards

All category entrants in each region are judged by the same panel of two judges e.g. a New Home up to $450,000 in Wellington will be judged by the same two people that will judge all other categories in Wellington.

The judges go through each property and decide on the score against the set criteria for its category. 

How the Scoring Works

Each property is judged against a scorecard of 2000 points (1300 Workmanship and 700 Design, Style and Functionality).  Note:  Multi Unit properties are judged  (1100 Workmanship and 900 Design, Style, Functionality and general consideration).  Properties are then awarded either Gold, Silver, Bronze or no award.
