After verification of the accuracy (number of images, manipulation, etc.) every picture taken will be presented to three different independent professional jurors (without any context to the serie nor the name or starting number). The points (from 1 to 10) of each image of every participant will be summed up which gives the first order.
The pictures of the best (around the top 25%) from each contest of the first order will then be presented to three different jurors adding up additional points to the ones gathered in the first evaluation-round. Based on the results the best participants will be presented to the expert jury.
