Contest Jury Depot Group

I recently joined a couple groups and found this one.

http://fineartamerica.com/groups/contest-jury-depot.html?tab=overview

Andee started it and I think it's a great idea.

Anyone will to be a juror should join.
Anyone looking for jurors...this is a great way to get different people who work in different mediums.

She hasn't advertised it, I know that no one knows about it...so I thought I would give it a plug
because it is a really good idea.

The idea seems interesting. All our contests luck independent jurors and show unpredictable results. That kills the very idea and any sense of contests.However I can not predict clearly how this group will actually work in practice either. We'll see...

 

I Will look in here to get a jury for my next contest

Thanks Angel

You're welcome Beth....=)

I thought it was interesting too Yury, that's why I wanted to promote it, it has hardly any members at present.

Well, it would work in practice by the members being willing to jury for one thing.
Having a list of people handy would be convenient for any contest maker.

I am currently thinking about joining, But I am concerned about my abilities as a jurror for paintings... I like too many varieties...

Liking too many isn't a problem.

We all like art, that's why we are here right? lol

8 members now...the more we get the more this group has a chance of working. =)

Angel... Liking is one thing, and good for sure, but I would think that the job of Judging paintings would need someone more educated in that discipline... Still thinking though...I may join to add the "Peoples Favorite" element.

Some contest administrators give a list of criteria to look for.
Some whittle down the list before they give it to the jury.

It can work so many ways.

I don't think it takes an education per say. More like a critical eye...to see what work stands out most and fits the theme best.

Contest Jury Depot is now at almost 50 members....=)

If you are running a contest...this group is ready to be utilized.

We had a test contest and had a nice selection of members sign up to be on that jury. Very nice.

And some really nice entries placed. But now we just need ones that need a jury to come and ask.

We have folks willing to be on a jury but no one needing a jury as of yet. I guess it is a 2 part-er....

The Jury and the Contest admin in need of a jury.


Thanks for trying to get more involved in this Angelina. I guess it is now a wait and see.

You're welcome. It may not take off right away but I think it's a great idea...and many people do. Hopefully it will start getting utilized.
