All work is judged on a four-point system much like the US grading process. All judging is done independently and digitally then tabulated at our New York offices. To be in our show an entry must receive a minimum majority of the judges votes as either three or four points. Our medal winners must receive a majority of four votes from each judge.
¶ Judging is done in the spring, winners are all notified by email and the 3x3 Illustration Annual No 9 will be produced and distributed at the end of the year.
¶ You can find our annuals on newsstands of major chains and independent bookstores throughout America as well as Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe and Asia.
