Your input as a judge is invaluable to the Instructable community and helps us to run the best contests on the internet.
This Instructable focuses of two parts of the judging process:
1. How to create and submit your judging ballot.
2. Understanding the judging criteria to make an informed decision on how to rate a project.
***NOTE: the images in this Instructable are not from a real contest. They are all Instructables I (carleyy) made. I will use them as examples in STEP 6 as a mock judging experience.
Step 1: Look for PM
Once you've received a PM letting you know judging has started, you can head to the contest page to see the ballot!
Step 2: Add Projects to Ballot
Please note that some contests will include enough finalists to result in a second page of projects, so make sure to scroll down to the bottom and check that you've added everything!
See STEP 5 "Common Judging Questions" for information about how many entries you should judge.
