Judging Criteria

The host judge in each category will assemble a panel of experts from both within and outside CASE member institutions. Judges will examine each entry for quality, creativity, innovation, adherence to professional standards, and success in meeting stated objectives. More detailed judging criteria are specified, as needed, in category listings. Judges have the right to eliminate entries not submitted in the appropriate category. Incomplete entries will not be judged.


Awards and Presentation

All awards will be made at the judges' discretion. Judges reserve the right to deny gold, silver, bronze, or honorable mention awards for any category where entries do not rise to the standard of excellence expected for the Accolades awards.
