We've got the judging criteria down to a fine art. A panel of judges will score all eligible entries based on:
The visible use of Scotch® Heavy Duty Shipping Packaging Tape in the sculpture and the ease of recognition of the Scotch® Heavy Duty Shipping Packaging Tape in the Photo(s).
The originality of the sculpture.
Quality and construction of the sculpture and how well the sculpture is presented in the Photo(s).
The top five entries, based on the judges' scores, will be put up to a public vote on this site from April 19 - May 2. People can vote up to 10 times per day for the sculpture they think should win the Grand Prize, based on creativity (60%) and presentation (40%).
The two sculptures that earn the most votes will go head-to-head for the Grand Prize, receiving new scores from the judges, based on creativity (60%) and presentation (40%). The sculpture with the highest score wins!
