THE NEW VOTE OF THE CREWS (70%)
On the jury’s form there are various criteria including a good wall production, a throw-up, a sketch or a tag – swing, legibility, originality, composition, concept and static. Numerous giants of the scene have influenced and determined the weighting and the guide lines of those criteria which proved worthwhile in 2006. Surely one could always supplement something or change the weighting.
After the competition every Crew sends 1 member to judge the other crews. We hand out the jury’s form to this member and he gets 45 minutes to judge the competitors!
THE VOTE OF THE JUDGE (20%)
First of all a jury member has to be in a position to estimate lots of different criteria. Of course not every jury member knows everything, but we claim to be open minded and willing to learn new things without forgetting the foundations. Open your eyes for developements and innovations in Writing. The Jury Member will mostly be an international Writer.
THE VOTE OF THE ORGANISATION (10%)
There are different criteria which will be voted by the judges and the crews for each criteria, each judge, each crew has to give points from 1 to 5. As more points the judge and the crews give to a crew as better the crew will stand on the ranking list. The evaluation will be summarized according to priorities. Every single category has a separate evaluation system and rules. There is a formula on the form of the jury to analyse the judgements. As soon as all judgements are made, those data are entered into a computer program and added or rather defined with the weighting.
