About kbbreview Retail & Design Awards

The judges score each design project against these criteria. Each carries an equal weight towards the final score.

  • Aesthetics
  • Meeting and exceeding the brief
  • Problem solving
  • Product and material choice
  • Unique ideas and initiative
  • Value for money


This means that judges are principally looking for how well it has served the customer who has paid for it. They are not concerned with whether it is contemporary or traditional in style, for instance.

It is also worth noting that judges do NOT consider writing ability or photography quality in their deliberations but obviously the words and photos need to clearly get the project details across as well as possible
