Our Judges

We have a high calibre team of agents, managers, producers and studio executives who act as our judges. Due to the work commitments of these people it is hard to release a list of names at an early stage because they have a tendency of vanishing on location etc. at short notice. We will however release a list of judges as we get closer to the contest ending.
