The awards are run by local lifestyle magazine, Trend, and judged by an independent panel of judges. Head judges, Ken Massie of Visit Scotland and Karen Molloy of Thorpe Molloy, commented:

‘A great range and variety of businesses and organisations entered the 2015 Life With Style Awards, from those just established in the past year, to those that have been trading for over 100 years. Some are multi-award winning; others have entered an awards ceremony for the very first time. However, common to all of the finalists is their unstinting commitment and will to succeed. We read a range of genuinely inspiring entries from right across the spectrum that enhance the lives of so many people living, working, studying and visiting across Aberdeen City and Shire. The judging process has been particularly challenging, but we’ve found a group of very worthy winners’.
