Judging is conducted by an independent panel of industry peers and business professionals.
Each judge is selected for their knowledge and experience and their willingness to volunteer and commit time to the non paid role of judge of the Brolga Northern Territory Tourism Award.
The selection process ensures that a broad range of industry is represented and that skills and expertise are complementary. The judging panel is reviewed each year and operates independently of Tourism NT.
The Judging panel for the 2022 Brolga Awards is being finalised and will be announced at a later date.
