JUDGING PROCESS: the jury, who will score all the entries, will score each image between 1 and 5 for the first round. The judging process will be blind. No names or any kind of information will be given to the juror. The 1 scores will be added to produce a final score out of 5. The highest scoring images will then go through a second round to be re-scored between 1 and 7 by the juror on the panel, and the highest scoring image after this round will be deemed the first place winner. In the case of a tie the scores from the first round will be added to the scores of the second round. The Image with the highest overall score will be deemed the winner. In the event that images are still tied at the end of the judging process, those images will be re-judged by a further independent judging panel to produce the winner. Results of the competition: the contestant or the winner of the competition will be notified by email on the final day of the competition. Decisions of the juror are final and binding.
