How are the Awards Judged?

When voting, your clients score you on various aspects of your product or service. We then use a combination of your Average Voter Score and our Judging Process to draw up the Regional Finalists, the Regional Winners and the National Winners.

Using each entrant's Average Voter Score means that it's not just about the total number of Votes you get, it's also about thew quality of the Votes.

TWIA is not a 'most votes wins' Awards. TWIA is all about quality. Our system allows wedding businesses of all shapes and sizes to enter on a level playing field, whether you've done 5 weddings or 555!
