The Judging Process
- Your entry is received and reviewed for eligibility by the Executive Judge.
- That judge then reads and rates the entry.
- It is then passed along to the guest judges for review and rating.
- Once the contest deadline has passed, the top five entries from the guest judges are chosen.
- The Executive Judge then adds their rating to the scores of those top five and the winner is the entry with the highest combined score.
