Judging Criteria

Criteria for Judging

Entries will be judged by a technical panel consisting of scientific experts in the field of gender studies as well as experienced professional photographers. Entries will be judged on:

  • Technical quality, clarity, and composition; visual impact.
  • Overall effectiveness of the photos and accompanying essay in conveying a compelling/interesting story from the Koshi River basin. Therefore, the choice of subject and how you choose to describe it in the entry submission form through the essay are very important.
  • Novelty, flair for the unexpected, ability to capture a photo-perfect moment, a ‘wow’ factor, among other things.
