De juryleden die wij voor elke ronde selecteren hebben zich al geruime tijd Internationaal bewezen in de bruidsfotografie. Hierdoor weten zij heel goed wat een goede bruidsfoto onderscheidt van een leuke bruidsfoto. Er zal onder andere gelet worden op: impact, emotie, sfeer, bijzonderheid, gebruik van licht, compositie en nabewerking. 

 

Hoe wordt er beoordeeld?

Alle inzendingen worden anoniem beoordeeld, dus de naam van de fotograaf is daarbij niet zichtbaar en de juryleden zitten niet bij elkaar om te discussiëren over foto’s.

Indien 2 of 3 juryleden een stem geven voor een bepaalde foto dan krijgt deze foto een award.
Een jurylid ziet niet welke foto er een stem heeft gekregen van een ander jurylid
Een jurylid mag maximaal een stem geven aan 10% van de inzendingen.
Er is geen minimum voor het aantal stemmen per jurylid
