A panel of design professionals, artists, and stakeholders will jury this competition, and will do so in accordance with the procedures outlined in this document. Jurors will assess the submissions and determine winners, which they will rank in order. Jurors will base their judgment on their own expertise, the work submitted by the competitors, the information contained in the competition document, and any questions and answers that arise during the judging process. Each juror will examine every submission.
The firms, partners, and professional associates of the jurors are enjoined from participating in the competition. If a juror is found to be knowingly involved in any material way with a submission, the juror will be replaced at the discretion of the Professional Advisor.
Jurors who cannot attend each meeting of the jury may be replaced by an alternate selected by the Professional Advisor and the sponsor. The Professional Advisor will observe jury meetings to ensure impartial enforcement of the competition's regulations and intentions. Representatives of the sponsor may also attend jury meetings as observers. Should the jury deadlock, the Professional Advisor will cast the tie-breaking vote.
