An independent panel of recognised and knowledgeable technology leaders will determine winners of the Real Innovation Technology Awards. Our focus is to ensure a balanced assessment of submissions from leaders representing different industries who will bring their experience and expertise to the process ensuring that the winners of each category are truly outstanding. The panel is carefully selected to ensure the fairness and objectivity. The judges are required to declare any conflict of interest in submissions over which they deliberate. In that case that submission will be reassigned. The 2023 RITA judging panel can be seen below.
