Thank you for volunteering to judge the International Digital Awards. Please be sure that you have the time to read the entries (you are agreeing to judge up to 5 entries if you sign up) and judge them fairly based upon the scoring system you will receive. After you decide which category you would like to judge by reading the descriptions on the category pages, please send an email, making sure to follow the below instructions/format. You should receive a confirmation email within a week of contacting us. If you do not, please check back with the coordinator. In mid July, you will be contacted by email by a Category Coordinator with judging instructions and the entries you will be scoring. SCORES MUST BE RETURNED BY September 30, 2016.
