Do You Have Entry Questions?
Please direct all general inquiry questions to: 


All papers submitted by the deadline will have a first round review within one month (30 day scoring period).


According to AJA standards, judging criteria are rigorous since judges will read and pre-score all entry forms while considering any supporting materials submitted.

They may also be asked to give a score for each answer within the entry form. These will be combined to give an overall score to each entry. All judges’ pre-scores will then be combined, and the highest scoring entries will then determine the shortlist. Supporting information will be added to define the scores correctly so that no mistakes are made while defining the winners, especially if they are processed manually in full judging rounds.

Good Luck!
