'Fairest screening system'

The most significant value of the Outdoor Design Award is to provide the most convenient, accurate, and valuable design screening in the world based on judging system not on personal competences of evaluators. We think fairness is the most important aspect. To achieve this, personal information such as nationality, organisation, and name are not revealed to the judges. Additionally, judges from the first screening are excluded from the second screening. The final screening is conducted the same way as the first screening. Around 15% of entries are selected as final winners. The percentage of result matching with other evaluators is automatically calculated and information is conveyed to all the evaluators. It makes the process more focused on judging.
