How will the contest be judged?
Every contest has its own set of judging criteria that are determined before the contest begins. Some contests may have more complex judging systems than others, but the basic principles are always the same. The judges will look at a variety of factors when judging a photo, such as composition, storytelling, lighting, and more.
The WPC Judging Committee is responsible for ensuring that all photos submitted to the contest meet the judges’ standards. They will be looking for well-executed shots that capture an interesting or compelling story. The exact judging process will vary from contest to contest, but generally speaking, photos that are well thought out and composed will usually be rewarded with higher marks than those that are rushed or sloppy. Judges also take into account how well a photo executes its creative intent; if a photo is poorly executed it can often mean the difference between winning and losing.
