Head of Test, Environments & DevOps
Chair of the Judging Panel
A truly independent awards programme
The European Software Testing Awards judges are appointed based on their extensive experience in the software testing and QA field. These seasoned professionals, all of whom currently hold senior management roles guarantee that each entry is judged fairly and accurately.
To ensure complete impartiality all entries are judged anonymously with company and/or individual names, products, or references to any identifiable solution and/or service being removed before being distributed to the judges.
This stringent process means that each winner of an award has done so based purely on merit. So regardless of company size, budget, customer base, market share, influence, vendor, academic, end user, consultant or otherwise; The European Software Testing Awards truly is an independent awards programme that recognises and rewards outstanding achievement.
The following are comments gathered from the 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 Judging Panels after they had reviewed all entries. It may help you in deciding on what information to include in your entries.
As a whole the entries did not take into account user experience as much as the Judging Panel would have liked.
Additionally, the entrants should remember that they are being judged by a panel of industry peers and so would do well to pitch the entry to the target audience. A few entries were considered “overly simplistic.”
