- Scoring System:: This year, Bronze, Silver, and Gold awards will be given in each of the four submission categories. Judges will give each project a score out of 10. The following final scores (once averaged) will earn your project an award:
Bronze: 7+ Points | Silver: 8+ Points | Gold: 9+ Points. Multiple projects can win the same award (eg. Two submissions can win Silver in the Agency category). There will also be a single, Best-In-Show award.
