Scoring

 

The scoring procedure used will be of the placement system. The format is judging by selection – as opposed to a points marking system.

Competitors of each Category will be scored and placed by each Judge according to the judging criteria specified for each Category of Competition. Judging results are transferred to a “master sheet” to determine each competitor’s final placing. This is achieved by adding up the place votes of each competitor and recording the total.

Where five or seven judges are used, one high and one low score shall be dropped. When using a panel of nine judges, the two highest and two lowest scores shall be excluded in computing each competitor’s final placing. Ties will be broken by the lowest placing system not most first votes. This deduction is necessary to guard or eliminate judging bias and bad judging. After deduction the competitor with the lowest collective total will be declared the winner. If two or more athletes have the same number of firsts the judges chairman shall have the casting vote. If judges consider an athlete does not meet the required standard they have the right to eliminate the athlete from the contest.

The number of finalists in each category shall be recorded on a judges list of competitors. Three finalists of each Category is normally recommended. In Categories with a large entry this may be extended to six Finalists.
