The bar is set high this year!

I love to see all the beautiful pictures that are entered, but I hate to see them too! I know there are some fabulous photographers here, and I just can't compete!

Kaysie why don't you risk an entry or two (or so..) and let others be a judge of that?

Who is judging this competition? John, that has to be cheating entering your own picture! Just joking but I agree, there are a lot of good pictures this year and we still have two months still left!

Default Re: Caudata.org 2009 calendar photo competition

I was going to make a note about the judging process because someone invariably asks how the competition is judged.

We normally complete the judging in 2 rounds. In the first round people are asked to pick 13 of their favourite photos (12 months + a cover shot). Each photo picked gets a point. The more votes your photo gets, the more points you have and the better your chance of being a winner .

Now, clearly we don’t get 13 outright winners from the first round. There are always a number of photos that receive the same number of points towards the bottom of the winners pile. These photos will be voted on again in a second round to try to and establish which of these should be on the calendar.

If after this second round there is a stalemate between a couple of photos then admin may make a decision based on species and image quality.

The judging panel will consist of the site moderators. If for some reason we don’t get enough votes from moderators (not all the mods are active 100% of the time) we will ask long standing and respected members of the forum to cast a vote.

As John states – judges can enter but they are not allowed to vote for their own photos.

I think this year I will publish the results to make the judging as transparent as possible. The desire to know how your photo faired probably outweighs the disappointment some may feel in not getting many votes.
