At this point you have been asked by the Instructables staff to help judge a contest. You may be a professional outside of the Instructables community, prolific author, or a past contest winner.
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
Now that you have been asked by our staff to help judge keep an eye out for a message in your inbox with further judging instructions.
Once you've received a PM letting you know judging has started, you can head to the contest page to see the ballot!
