Judges' Overview

Judging is a great opportunity not only to see what is being produced in our field, but to team up with other professionals to provide feedback and input. It is a team effort to help encourage quality in our profession.

Judging consists of the following:

Online Communication Competition Judges

  • Register to judge.
  • Attend Judges' Orientation.
  • The Orientation package contains all the forms for judging.
  • If applicable, perform Web site judging in November.
  • Attend all-day Consensus Judging to review all entries in all categories, determine award winners, and finalize the judging forms. Judges who have reviewed entries via URL attend half-day.

Technical Art Competition Judges

  • Register to judge.
  • Attend Judges Orientation.
  • Attend Consensus Judging to review all entries in all categories, determine award winners, and finalize the judging forms.

Technical Publications Competition Judges

  • Register to judge.
  • Attend Judges' Orientation.
  • Pick up the materials you will judge.
  • Review the materials at home during the last week of October and the first two weeks of November, marking the judging forms with detailed, preliminary comments.
  • Attend Consensus Judging to confer with other judges on the entries. Entries are evaluated by category, and the time commitment is approximately 3 to 4 hours, depending on the number of entries in the category. At this time, the judging teams determine the award winners and finalize the judging forms.

Note that all judges must attend orientation.

If you have any questions about judging, don't hesitate to ask one of the competitions contacts.

Spotlight on...Judging

"I have both entered and judged in the publications competition. In many ways, I believe the judging has helped me more professionally. While I received valuable feedback that helped me improve the particular books I submitted, the judging has exposed me to other documentation professionals' ideas and experiences. This has promoted growth in intellect and perspective that has affected everything I create."

Ellen Lidington
