The committee will be responsible for selecting judges for all NMPS competitions. There will be a pool of approved judges to select from. For league competitions there will only be a single judge. For photographer of the year there will be three judges. Judges will be briefed on the theme of each competition and shown any brief that is given to members. The scoring system of the relevant competition is also explained to the judge. Judges are informed of the grade structure of relevant competition and whether images from different grades are mixed together. Judges are also advised that any commentary on images is to be as constructive and objective as possible. The decision of the judges is final and no discussion is to be entered into with the judges regarding their decision. If a member has an issue with any aspect of the judging it must be submitted in writing to the competition secretary at: firstname.lastname@example.org
