Judging Criteria

Judges will read and score all entries and supporting materials using a digital score card. Judges will be asked to give a score based on each category’s objective.

All judgements will be combined to provide each entry an overall ranking (score). The highest–scoring entries will determine the Platinum and Gold Crushie winners, as well as the top contenders for the People’s Crushie.

Confidentiality

All materials submitted to the CBMAs will remain confidential to the Judges (including numbers), and they will not be discussed outside of the judging process. All Judges agree to sign a Non–Disclosure Agreement (NDA) prior to judging. Judges will receive a list of entrants and their campaign titles before viewing individual entry forms. CBMAs go to great length to avoid Judges viewing their own work, but Judges agree to remove themselves from judging that entry should they deem any conflict of interest. Winning entries may be used in post-event CBMA materials to promote best practice, and permission will be sought from entrants before publication.
