Online Judging System a Hit with IABC Edmonton Capital Awards
On June 2, 2011, we had the privilege of attending the IABC Edmonton Capital Awards for communications professionals. We had recently launched an online judging system for them and were pleased to receive some feedback on our work.
In an anonymous survey, each judge was asked to rate various features of the new system out of 5 (based on functionality and ease of use), and they gave it an overall score of 4.5. The judges agreed that the best features of the online system are automated calculations, ability to judge remotely, and the quick view list of entries with judging overview. “It changes everything,” said one judge, “Much more practical approach that respects how tight everyone’s time is.” Another said “Everything was well organized – two big thumbs up.”
“It changes everything. Much more practical approach that respects how tight everyone’s time is.”

We’re happy to hear that we succeeded in making the process more enjoyable for the judges. Congrats to IABC Edmonton on the success of the awards and of course, congrats to all of this year’s winners!
