How to become a judge

Do you have at least 5 years of marketing experience? Are you passionate about agriculture? You are just who we're looking for!

Judges will be required to judge entries from competitors and we expect non-bias judging.  If you are not able to judge competitors' work, then please do not register as a judge

Judging Criteria

How will entries be judged?

Entries will be judged based on 3 criteria – PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT, EXECUTION and RESULTS.  Weighting varies depending on the category.

View the Best of CAMA Judging Criteria Rubric_Rev 2022 to understand how to judge each entry.

Your entry will be reviewed against the criteria by a team of qualified judges with experience in the agri-marketing, advertising and communications industries. The highest scoring entries in each category will be reviewed by a second team of judges, who will select the winners and certificate of merit winners.  The winning entries will then be judged for the Best of Show categories.

Winners are honoured at the CAMA gala.
