2018 Questar Winners

Judging Procedures

The QUESTAR Awards is unique in that each entry is judged against itself, to the degree that the individual entry achieves its intended purpose. Entries from large or small organizations have an equal chance at winning; judging is based not on budget, but on the values of creativity, craft, and skill, as symbolized by the QUESTAR Awards.

Each entry is evaluated three separate times during the preliminary rounds. The three sets of scores are then averaged into a single score for the individual entry. A certain minimum score must be achieved to qualify for an award. Only one Gold, Silver and Honors Award will be given in each classification; however, if no entry scores high enough, no award will be given.

The Gold Award Winners become candidates for a Grand Award. In addition, one Best of Show Award will be presented to the one entry that best exemplifies the spirit of the QUESTAR Awards.
