Judging will be conducted rigorously

Your PDF documents will be compiled, category by category, and distributed electronically to each judge for their study.

Expert judges, chosen from the design houses, individual designers, web development houses, production companies, advertising and marketing agencies and, of course, the music majors, leading independent labels, maybe even a musician or two, will vote independently for the design work they think is best in a given category. Their combined votes will be totaled to find a winner. Some judges may judge more than one category, because their expertise is broad enough, or because the category criteria are similar. Other judges may vote on only one category, but it will probably be a larger category, with more entries.

The judges' decisions will be independently arrived at and final. No correspondence will be entered into concerning the judges' decisions.

Please note: all judges will sign non-disclosure agreements before being given access to any entry. This is in keeping with the organisers' clear intent to maintain high levels of confidentiality. If, for instance, an entrant wishes to embargo certain information because of its commercial sensitivity, then provided the material is clearly marked as confidential, any material subject to an embargo will not be published.
