Judging Criteria

Portfolio work will be judged on uniqueness/originality, professional quality (craftsmanship/skill), aesthetics (style, tone, design), concept and application of materials.

Judges score all portfolio items submitted as a whole, and not just a single piece of work. Entries are not scored against one another. Scores are based on the individual skill, craft and creativity of each artist/creator.
