Jury Composition

The composition of the Jury for 2015 is to be determined.

The Process
The Jury will be provided with the digital images of all entries identified only by a numerical code and title. Each Juror will numerically rate each entry on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being among the stongest in that category.

The Jury is asked to evaluate each image wihin each show category on the following, equally weighted criteria:
1) Composition
2) Technical Execution
3) Creativity & Innovation
4) Overall Viusal Impact

Should a Juror have a conflict of interest with a specific entry or entrant, they are asked to recuse themselves from voting on those entries where such a conflict may exist.

The Results
The numerical scores from each of the Jurors will be added for each entry and the results sorted in descending order. The top 150 to 175 entries will be invited to hang and compete for awards.
