Several formats for judging have been tried over the years. The most popular judging format is the one currently being used, where the competition is judged by the participating crews themselves and one invited judge. By adding up all the verdicts an overall winner is found. This format works great, everybody involved always have an opinion about it and with this format everyone is heard.
On the Write4Gold Valuation Form there are various guidelines such as Originality, Composition, the Concept of the Wall how the Letters swing, how they flow and the Idea of the whole production and many more. Numerous Artists have influenced and determined the weighting and the guide lines of those criteria which proved worthwhile in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. Surely one could always supplement something or change the weighting.
