Jury

In Competizer entries can be rated not only by Publicity but also by Jury.

Jury can vote in some competiton types such as: Internally Judged, Community and Jury Votes, Jury Picks, Community Decides, only when jury voting stage is running (before or after that round jury has access to judging panel, but there aren't any entries).

Follow these steps:

  1. Go to: Setup and edit > Stages > Jury voting round > Jury and add new member (Name and email are required). You can add as many members as you want.

Jury panel - help for judges

How to access jury panel?

Address for jugdes panel is http://jury.competizer.com

Judge has to sign in with the login and password provided by competition organizer. Voting is available while submission round is still open.

How to execute voting?

In jury panel there are 3 sets of sorting options:

order by 1: disable this option | not rated entries first | rated entries first

order by 2: disable this option | best entries according to the jury | most liked entries (Facebook) | most viewed entries | most commented entries | most often added to favourites

order by 3: disable this option | oldest entries first | newest entries first


They are evaluated sequentially, entries are ordered by option "order by 1" (unless it is disabled), then if two entries have the same values (for example both are rated by you) they are ordered by option "order by 2" . If they still have the same values (for example they are rated by you and both have the same summary rating) they are ordered by option 3.

Best method of voting is to add at least one star to each entry. Then jury can see and vote on new entries.

We recommend using this sorting option:

Order by 1: not rated entries first.

How judge can check voting result?

Select sorting options as below:
order by 1. rated entries first
order by 2. best entries according to the jury
order by 3. oldest entries first

then you've got 2 groups of entries:

  • 1st - entries rated by you (displayed first),
  • 2nd - entries not rated by you yet,

Entries in every group are ordered separately by summary jury rating.
If 2 entries have the same rating older entry is displayed first.

So as the result you have list of all entries rated by you ordered by summary jury rating,
followed by entries not yet rated by you ordered by summary jury rating.

How judge can see the total result of voting?

1. If you're jury member and want to order by summary jury rating, select order options as follows
order by 1: disable this option
order by 2: best entries according to the jury
order by 3: disable this option

2. if you a competition manager you don't have to login to jury panel.
Just go to Winners page in competition admin panel, and select category you're interested in.
There you find information about rating and how many judges voted so far.
