JUDGES, JUDGING and CRITERIA:
It is here stated that any complaints or concerns should be addressed to the director.  This holds true again this year for ANY aspect of the event.

The contest will be judged by All the contestants from the opposite Masters Division. The teams judge the solos, and the solos judge the teams. No Expressed criteria is mandated or required. The judges will rank the entire field from first to last place. Cumulative low score wins. In the event of ties, the awards money will be split.

The artists  are hereby given the following criteria, outlined below to be used as  SUGGESTIONS ONLY in both helping the artists design pieces (IF THEY SO CHOOSE) and to help them  judge their decisions on how to rank the entire field (IF THEY FEEL THEY NEED IT). Please understand that this criteria is not mandatory to use at all.
 It is simply offered as a reference guideline that the artists MAY  refer to for the purpose of helping to objectify what are sure to be some close calls in  the final placing of the top, mid and low range. This criteria is provided as only a general suggestion of a direction to pursue in designing and executing the sculptures, or in ranking them.

THE CRITERIA SUGGESTIONS:
(NOT mandatory to use)


 Sample Questions the Artists MAY ask of themselves as an aid to determine the rankings or to help compare the sculptures to each other. These are also only suggestions. The artists may also put any of the criteria suggestions (above) into this question format. Or they may devise similar types of questions of their own:
                                            Which sculpture is executed the best?
                                            Which sculpture has the most original theme?
                                            Which sculpture do you like best?
                                            Which sculpture has strongest overall impact?
                                            Which sculpture displays greatest craftsmanship/skill?
                                            Which sculpture exhibits the most detail ?
                                            Which sculpture appears to push the media to the its limit?
                                            Which sculpture exhibits the most artistic merit?
                                            Which sculpture expresses quality to you?
It is hoped that the artists will consider as many aspects as possible, and include as much information as they are able to in their overall evaluations of each sculpture.
