The judging process is a two-part system: screening and finals. In screening, the jurors are divided into multiple groups and each category is distributed equally amongst them. Judges are not permitted to vote on work in which they were directly involved. Each juror views the entries independently. Print entries are spread out on rows of tables and digital entries are projected on a large screen. Any juror can put a print entry into the final voting by picking it up from the table. Digital entries are selected by checking an “in” or “out” column on prepared scoring sheets. For the final round the judges are brought back together as one group. Each judge votes “in” or “out” on each entry. After the judges make their selections, their votes are tallied. A simple majority is usually required for a finalist to be selected a winner.
