Please note:
 - This is a voluntary role with expenses covered by the Institute.
 - Experience, capacity, and skills in the areas of expertise will be key criteria. Jurors will be selected for their strengths in key areas and may therefore be restricted to judging limited categories. For instance, landscape planning areas will be judged by suitably qualified professionals.
 - The Jury composition will aim to demonstrate diversity in age, gender, location and professional experiences.
 - Conflicts of interest will need to be declared for any decision made by members of the Jury.
 - Judges should be aware that their details will be published once selected by the Institute to sit on the jury.
 - As respected experts in their fields, Judges will be celebrated through media and profiled by NZILA.

Successful candidates will be selected by the NZILA Executive Committee and advised in writing by 8 October 2021.
