Judging

Presented images will be adjudicated via “Live Judging”.

All the images will be projected on a screen that has been calibrated using the official PSSA test calibration application to ensure uniformity in the presentation of all the images.

Each photo will be judged by 3 judges, which are present at the time of the screening. The total of the 3 scores will represent the final score. Where 2 or more adjudicators are of the opinion that an image does not conform to the definition of the entered category, the image will be disqualified.
