Information for North Carolina Judges

Thank you, NC3C judges, for volunteering to judge our contest entries again this year. We can't say enough about how much we appreciate your efforts. 

If you're curious, you can check out our Contest Rules.

Judges should take into account both the professionalism and quality of the entry, and the challenges of producing the entry—the amount of time available between idea and product, budget constraints, available staff time to carry out the project, and so on. 

If a particular category has any special instructions, you'll see them on the judging form for that category.

Judging Minnesota's Contest Entries

    • You'll receive an email from our judging system asking you to create an account, or to log in if you have served as a judge in the past.
    • Once logged in, you'll see a list of the entries for the category you’ve been assigned. If you’ve been assigned to more than one category, you’ll see the categories listed.
    • Read the entry materials and review the uploaded project files and/or URLs. You will score each entry on a number of criteria.
    • We ask that you take a little time to provide some detail in the comments fields, both encouraging and critical, to help our communicators understand what they are doing well and what they might do improve. Many of the people who enter our contest consider the judges' comments to be the most valuable reason to enter! It's really that important a part of our contest. Thanks for helping keep it that way.
    • You may nominate one entry for “Best of Show” in a category. This step is optional - nominate an entry only if you think it really stands out as deserving consideration for the honor. Nominate only one per category, please. It's absolutely fine NOT to nominate any entries for Best of Show. (The entrants would love to get your nomination, of course!)

Thanks again. If you have any questions, contact
