I was asked to head a judging committee for a local art competition and art show. I came up with and presented the judging information to our head judge. He thought it was too over done and thought we should just use a sticker system to rate the art. The three judges could give out stickers, and the pictures with the most stickers won?????????? What in the heck is that about?? Shouldn't there be a rating system. I thought each picture should be rated from one to ten in different criteria (i.e. technical ability, creativity, form . . .). Please give me some ideas or at least some backing for judging this contest.
