Who are the judges?
Judging is conducted by a panel of 4 judges with Mark Gray as the Head Judge. The judging of the final round is completed before any category results are published so the judge is unaware of the placings or identities of the finalists.
Each image is scored by all judges and the total of the scores is averaged to produce a final score out of 100.
The image with the highest final score in each category is deemed the winner of that category. The grand prize winner will be the contestant with the highest overall score.

The Integrity of the competition is of paramount importance and strict measures have been put in place to protect the integrity and security of the competition. Checks are performed before each judge views an image.
These checks include ;
Blind Judging – All images are judged blind. This means that no names, locations or identifying elements are shown during the judging process. Judges do not know who submitted the image they are judging.
Relationship Crossmatching – Prior to judging, relationship checks are made to ensure judges can not judge images from a personal or professional relationship.
