Judging Criteria

The judging of images is purely subjective and not an exact science. The purpose of the Awards is to promote creativity and innovation in image making. In the context of an Awards of Excellence Program, images that display innovation and creativity should be acknowledged, AWARDED and rewarded.

These are the crucial points of evaluation that judges use as a guide to evaluate images at state and national level of the AIPP Awards.
