The prestige of the London Design Awards competition relies in large part on the high calibre of the juries that convene each year to review submissions. London Design Awards has made a special effort to find a suitable panel of judges whose works exemplify the qualities of top designs. The jury panel comprises experienced professionals in their field and industry, including creative designers and art directors from international agencies, architects, interior designers, product designers, educators, marketers or business owners, and exemplify diversity in professional experience, geography, gender, and ethnicity. All judges are selected based on experience, availability and credibility to their respective industry.

Evaluation Criteria:
Individual criteria differ by category, but the emphasis is on the overall quality of the entry: the merits of the entry, relative to the judges' experience and the claims in other entries, as well as the quality of the entry's narrative itself.

Judges score on a scale of 1-100, based on the below criteria:

Creativity / Originality / Concept / Idea
Content / Brief / Objective / Planning / Execution
Innovation / Technology
Quality / Functionality / Sustainability
Overall Impression / Wow! Factor / Memorable
