In the first phase of the evaluation process, the judges will be asked to select, based exclusively on their own personal criteria, from each of the two areas of the competition, the 20% of the best entries. The maximum that each judge will be able to choose is 20 entries. That is, if 100 entries have been submitted in a field, each judge will select the 20 best entries.
In the second phase, the selections of the judges in each field will be gathered. This process creates two new groups of selected entries, one for each section of the competition.
In the third phase these two new groups of entries are re-evaluated by the judges one by one, but this time based on several criteria. For each participation is scored:
A. The artistic value of the photo, with a total of 60 points of excellence.
B. The complete general or historical information provided for the photographed church, it’s importance, it’s exact location, but also its visiting information with a total of 20 points of excellence.
C. The other photos of the general view of the monumental environment which is the work of the contestant himself with a total of 20 points of excellence.
The maximum points that each entry can collect is 100.
In the fourth phase, the entries that have accumulated over 70 points will be selected. From these entries the judges and the advisors will select the three that will be awarded from each section of the competition.
