Judging Process Product Awards

E-LIQUID AWARDS

Round One

The first stage is all about compliance. During round one, the judges will assess packaging to check for inappropriate branding or marketing (IP infringement, appealing to underage users, etc).

If a product is not deemed as acceptable or fails to meet any of the above criteria, it may be rejected from the entry process. 

Round Two

The second stage is a blind test. All e-liquids will be tested by a standard atomiser and mod combination, set to the same conditions for each e-liquid.

Nicotine salt e-liquids will be tested by a standard MTL atomiser and mod combination, set to the same conditions for each e-liquid.

Each e-liquid will be blind tested by our judges and scored out of 10. The e-liquid with the highest average points score from the judging panel will be put through in each category.

The judges will initially know the category that the e-liquid has been entered into but will have no more information than that.

Our panel of judges will determine the finalists in each category and the winners will be announced at our awards ceremony on Friday May 27.
