Judging Process

An independent panel of judges who are prominent industry experts, representing the facility management industry, will determine the winners through a balanced judging assessment.  The judges will bring their extensive knowledge and expertise to the judging process to ensure that the winning entries are truly outstanding and worthy of receiving the prestigious WWA FM Award.

The panel is carefully selected to ensure the awards judging process is fair and objective. We recognize and respect the sensitive nature of the information submitted in the entries. Submissions are all confidential and not disclosed outside the judging process. 

The judge's decision is final and no correspondence, telephone, email or communication of any kind will be entered into in relation to decisions reached. After the closing date for receiving submissions, all entries will be sent for the first round of review. Entries will be carefully scrutinised with the best selected to go forward to the shortlist for each category.

The shortlist of finalists will be published on the awards' website. The judges will score each of the entries allocated to them against a predetermined set of scores. Scores are then collected and collated, with the entrant receiving the highest overall score being declared the winner of that category.

The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony at the gala dinner on 8 April 2020 at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.
