Judging will be based on the following categories and judging criteria.
Community Involvement Award
Technical Excellence Award
40th Anniversary Vintage Award
The judging is based on photographs and it is in your interest to ensure that they reflect your entry/entries to best advantage. It goes without saying that photos taken by professional photographers will have an edge on snap shots taken by amateurs on standard digital cameras. The judges will be looking for visual appeal, composition, originality, creativity - essentially high-quality images that capture your project at their best i.e. as soon after project completion as possible.
This is particularly true for paving. Ensure that the sun is in the correct position. Paving photographs taken toward the sun will pick up the block definitions. Also, ensure that the project is clean and free of rubble, efflorescence, and cement staining etc.
The following photographic material must accompany all submissions: A minimum of two separate photographs (maximum five) – one showing a general view of the project and at least one showing specific details must be submitted.
