The decision of the jury is final and cannot be contested. The choir will be awarded points based on the average of the jury scores.
For each work performed, choirs will be assessed on Intonation (50 points) and Fidelity to Score (50 points), on a 100-point scale. The average mark for (a) Intonation and (b) Fidelity to Score will be calculated by dividing the total points by three (total points for Category A1 will be divided by two).
Choirs will also be assessed on their overall (c) Tone Quality (50 points) and (d) Artistic Impression (50 points), on a 100-point scale.
The final score is on a 100-point scale, calculated by dividing the sum of (a), (b), (c) and (d) by 2. The awards are given according to the following:
|Gold||80.00 – 100 points|
|Silver||70.00 – 79.99 points|
|Bronze||60.00 – 69.99 points|
The choir that attains a Gold award with the highest score in each category will be awarded the title of “Category Champion” and will be required to take part in the Grand Prix
|Intonation - 50 points (a)||Fidelity - 50 points (b)|
