The remaining six categories are determined by a nomination process, with companies putting themselves forward or being nominated by their peers and service providers. These entries were vetted by the IR Magazine editorial team to produce a short list. The winners will be selected by a judging panel. This year’s judges are:
- Ben Ashwell, editor, IR Magazine
- Colleen Johnston, corporate board director
- Yvette Lokker, CIRI CEO
- Pat Marshall, former investor relations officer at Cineplex and lifetime achievement award recipient
