Behind the Scenes

2012

Approximately 8,000 photos were carefully sorted according to the contest’s eight categories in preparation for the judging at the Jostens headquarters in Minneapolis. During the judging, three judges studied every photograph marking their favorites with blue cups. The images without cups were removed from the tables by contest assistants and the judges again placed cups on their favorites, this time narrowing the number to approximately 12 photos for a particular category.

92


With each category narrowed to approximately 12 images, the process became more interactive as the judges discussed the composition and technical aspects of each of the finalists. After the robust discussion, and often more voting, the top five photos were ranked in order with the remaining images earning honorable mention. The First Place winners in each category then competed for the Grand Prize honor.
