Columbus Invitational Arts Competition
In each division, a jury was created with one judge representing each of the participating groups. The judges evaluated each artwork or performance (except their own group’s entry from 1 (weak) to 10 (strong) in the following areas: Creativity (Is it fresh? Is it original? Is it unexpected?), Craft (Technical skill and expertise, is it as the artist intended?) and Depth (Does it have deeper intellectual, emotional or spiritual significance?). Scores were averaged and then normalized to eliminate bias. The final scores were multiplied to yield the total. The Audience Favorite was selected via the same process, except with the general audience as the jury.
