Judging and Awarding:
Entries are judged to evaluate distinction in creative work.

Generally, Gold Winners receive a score of 90 or above and Silver Winners receive a score of 70 to 89. No more than 10% of entries will be awarded a Gold Davey. Best in Show selections are made by the Academy, from the pool of Gold Winners, based on their scoring and other elements of merit as determined by the Academy. The judges will award 13 Best in Show honours, one for each medium. Please visit daveyawards.com for a complete list of winners.
