Judging...

It is our aim to assist all entrants to the competition as much as possible in order to create a fair and ethical competition through the enforcement of rules that are clearly published.

Judging Work Sheet (Cheat Sheet)

The Judge's Work Sheet is voluntary this year but highly recommended.

To expedite the judging time and accuracy, there will be a section in the Judging Work Sheet next to the criteria in the PDF document for the entrants to list where specific content can be located in their newsletter and website.

This will help the clubs/councils focus on required criteria content and help the judges locate the content.

A “CONFIRMATION TEXT” will be listed by the entrant on the Judging Work Sheet form and uploaded to the communications awards website along with any other files to be submitted.

Entrants who comply will receive a 10 point bonus for that competition.

Qualified Judges—

Each club or council is required to submit a qualified judge for each competition they enter.

A benefit to judging entrants’ work is the insight and ideas you may gain on how to improve your own publication and/or website.

As such, every current club or council editor or webmaster that participates as a judge for each specific competition will receive a 10 point bonus for that competition!

Criteria and Judging Work Sheets can be downloaded at http://fwsaca.org/educomm/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/2016-AWARDS-FORMS.zip.

Judging Simplified—

The plan is to restructure the points awarded for each section. Rather than awarding points based on subjective criteria, there will be a list of specific criteria that represent one point each, with a maximum number of points to be awarded for each section.

In some cases, there will be more items to choose from than points available. This will allow FWSA to recognize different club/councils despite differences in priorities.
