Each member of the judging panel has extensive experience of self-employment and will be closely scrutinising all finalists based on criteria such as the strength of their portfolio, their innovation and creativity and their future plans. The awards themselves will be presented at a prestigious event on National Freelancers Day November 12, with over 120 guests expected to attend.
