A few things to know about the jury for the SPD judging:
This year, special effort was made to curate a jury of experts within three significant disciplines: design, photography, and illustration. The jury will vote on entries within the classifications in which they are expert: photo experts on photo entries, design experts on design entries, etc. The only exception to this rule is for the entries in the Magazine of the Year classification, where work is judged for all its significant attributes.

To ensure fairness, judges are not permitted to vote on their own rare specimens; in that case, their Captain steps in to vote in their stead.

No discussion about the specimens is allowed during the voting process, to prevent lobbying and undue influence. We leave that to the government.
