The judging process
Compass entries are judged by industry peers, nationwide. All entries are evaluated using a proven six-point scaling system. 50 percent of your score will be based on the Program Blueprint; a written description of the project goals, strategic plan, tactics, and measurable results. The other 50 percent of your score will be based on the Program Work Samples. Point totals determine Awards of Excellence or Awards of Merit.
