There are two rounds of judging: Shortlist and Finalist.
During the Shortlist round, judges give each entry a 1-10 rating. To advance to the Finalist round, entries must have an average score of 7.0 or higher and be among the top 10 scored entries in its category.
During the Finalist round, judges give each entry a 1-10 rating. To win, an entry must have an average score of at least 7.0 and be the highest rated entry in its category.
If no project meets the criteria above for a given category, there will be no winner for that category.
Finalists will be announced for The 2017 Motion Awards.
