This year’s judges are from a range of different companies, from Southern Cross Austereo to Westpac to Red Bull. And now that live judging day has been and gone, we can finally reveal them to you!

But first: if you haven’t got yourself tickets already – now is the time! The gala awards dinner is selling faster than ever, and you’ll experience some serious jealousy if you miss out. Because let’s face it – this night is the industry celebration of the year.
