How Photographer's Are Ranked/Selected?

Photographer's are selected and ranked primarily by our 5 judge panel. Another factor is voting. Voting by the public. Voting is 40% of the factor of who wins.

Why is voting only 40% and not 50%?

voting is only 40% and not 50% because we realize voting can become more of a popularity contest vs a true barometer of who should truly win. So we deem 40% of the vote a fair amount along with the voting of our experienced panel of judges. The judges are kept secret for obvious reasons.

THE JUDGES VOTES CAN/WILL CHANGE THROUGHTOUT THE YEAR AS THE MODELS ACCOMPLISHMENTS CHANGE. THE JUDGES VOTES ARE ONLY FINAL AT THE CLOSE OF THE CONTEST.
