Created by Judgify Team, Modified on Wed, 16 Nov 2022 at 12:16 PM by Judgify Team

A Judging Group is a group of submissions that results from creating a set of Filtering criteria and its Criteria pattern. A Judging Group is created to move a specific set of submissions or categories under one group that can be assigned to a single or multiple judges.


To create a Judging Group, the user must click on the +Create New Judging Group(s) from the right selection options. This option can only be seen when the submissions are shortlisted.


This will show up options to create a new judging group for a particular judging round.

Enter the “Judging Group Name” based upon the filter requirements or of your choice. Click on “Add filtering criteria” to create a Filtering Criteria for selection.

E.g. Case 1: Assuming there are 5 categories (Category A, Category B, Category C, Category D & Category E) and you'd like to filter specific categories like (Category A, Category C, Category E) under one group then use the below Filtering Criteria and Pattern.
