Judging Standards

Table Display entries will be judged in the five categories listed below. Each category will have equal weight with criteria as follows:

Is it exciting and pleasing to the eye with a newness of style? Does it use a concept created along new or unconventional lines? Does the design convey a feeling of professionalism and creativity? Creative expression is not necessarily practical or easily reproduced.
  • Overall Design: Does the deliverable piece illustrate effective use of Color and Balance? Is there a good use of Rhythm and Line within the display? Is there a good knowledge of Proportion and Scale demonstrated within the display? Have elements and principles of design been applied and used effectively?
  • Construction: Is the design easy to transport and present to the recipient? Is the design stable and durable? Does the design demonstrate a high quality of work and meet professional standards? Are all mechanics well-hidden, and is there a durable and stable framework (if applicable)? Do special features such as motion, lighting, and illusions work correctly? Has the deliverable piece been well-constructed?
  • Use of Balloons: Is there an exciting and creative use of balloons in terms of design, color, texture, quality, and finish?
  • Unity & Harmony: Do all the elements appear to belong together, resulting in a strong sense of oneness (a feeling of belonging together)?
