Judging / Voting System for International Showcase
The Surface Festival International Showcase scoring works on a points system which combines the scores from our panel of professional judges (3 judges) and the result of the text vote for each band. The Surface Festival International Showcase scoring system works on a 75:25 basis. Seventy five percent of the final score comes from the judges' points and twenty five percent comes from text votes cast for each band. Each judge’s points awarded will contribute 25% of the final score for each band. The full scoring system is explained here.
We hope you are as excited about the show as we are and we look forward to seeing you at the International Showcase!!
