How are judges picked?
If you are interested in judging Caples 2014, you can fill out the application here.
How are judges picked?
Candidates for judges need to submit an application online that will be reviewed by a committee to determine eligibility. Candidates must have at least five years of hands-on experience as a direct marketing creative.
How will entries be judged?
A panel of approximately 50 judges will select the winners through an extensive and thorough two-day process. These judges must be executive or SVP creative directors. All judges must presently work as a creative, and must have done so for at least five years. Round 1 is the elimination round. Round 2 is the scoring round.
Judging is based on a creative solution to the market problem via:
• Concept: the overall creative idea
• Copy: how well the copy is crafted
• Art direction: the use of design and graphic elements to deliver the message
Any judge that has a conflict of interest, including but not restricted to: working for an agency that submitted that campaign, and/or involved with any aspect of the project, will not be allowed to judge that entry. Judges may move entries between categories if deemed unsuitable to one but appropriate for another. Scoring entries will be made at the discretion of the judges, and their decision will be final.
Placers (gold, silver, bronze) will be determined based on overall scoring. There may be multiple placers or no placers at all in each category.
