Sample Judges Score Sheet 16

                                                                                                                                 


NARI members of the DelChester Chapter are invited to compete for the prestigious 2019 DelCY Awards in recognition of their achievements for remodeling projects finished between July 1, 2017 and November 30, 2018. 

 

Why You Should Enter

Companies – from one-person shops to the largest remodeling firms – report that winning this award is a major factor in enhancing their image within the industry and with prospective customers and is a major morale booster for their employees.  The numerous marketing opportunities available to DelCY winners help set your business apart from other remodeling companies, and NARI helps by providing tools and resources to make the most of this distinguished honor.

What Does a Winning Entry Look Like?

Your ability to present your project in a manner that helps judges distinguish your project will go a long way to set you apart from the competition.  The following tips from judges and staff are provided as guidelines, and are derived from feedback from recent program years:

  • Plan your entry.  A winner’s entry is always well thought out.  Arrange your photos, drawings, project descriptions, etc., in a way that’s easy to follow from the beginning to the end of the project. 
  • Describe the client’s needs/wants and be sure your entry shows how you met those needs.  Point out any obstacles and how they were handled.  A concise project description at the front of the entry can help the judges understand what you were trying to accomplish, laying the groundwork for the project before they get into the detail. 
  • Avoid filling up your entry pages with too many words.  Include only details that will help the judges determine why your project deserves high marks.  A bullet-point format is easy on the eyes.
  • When displaying photographs, show the before and after photos on facing pages whenever possible, so the judges don’t have to flip back and forth over and over. 
  • Small captions near photos can help tell the project story.

Team Entries

  • NARI is aware that the efforts of several companies may be needed to complete a remodeling project and would like to recognize all member companies that participated.  When a DelCY project is entered as a Team Entry, all NARI member companies involved (suppliers, services providers, etc.) can enter as one team and receive the recognition together for a reduced entry fee.  The main contractor on the project (having supervision and control) is considered the lead entrant and should fill out the first page of the entry form.  All participating team members need to fill out and sign the team entry portion of the form.  Remember, NARI recognizes member companies in the DelCY competition.  Individual members of the same company do not need to enter as a team.  All members of a winning team receive the same award and recognition as the team leader.

About Photographs

Since your project cannot be judged in person, good quality photos are key elements in your presentation.  Whether or not you use a professional photographer, please keep the following in mind:

  • ·         Take “before” photographs before the start of every project.  If you make this a standard practice, you will be ready when the job you anticipated to be an average remodel turns out to be a DelCY contender.  Take these shots from many angles.  Take photos for work-in progress if it will help show the complexity of the process or the obstacles encountered.  
  • ·         Take the “after” shots from the same angles as the before photoswhenever possible.  This helps give the judges a good perspective of the transformation.  We also need related pairs (the before and after) for print and publication.  Take both vertical and horizontal photos.  If your project is published, it stands a better chance of being featured on a magazine cover if the editors have vertical shots from which to choose.
  • ·         Only include photos that will enhance the project entry.  Although you have 15 pages, front and back, to display the project, you don’t need to use them all. 
  • ·         Do not include photographs that reveal the identity of the client, your company, or that show any people in the frame.  These elements are a distraction from the transformation you are trying to convey.  Also, we legally can’t use photos with individuals in them without proper release on file.  Therefore, these photos will not be chosen for display on the Wall of Fame (when you win!), or for publication by NARI or other media partners. Photos included with any of these elements will be removed from the entry and will be subject to point deductions.
  • ·         Any photo enhancement is limited to brightness, contrast, or sharpness.  No items may be added or removed through photo enhancement techniques.  Do not add or subtract items, or change the image in a way that may increase or decrease the value of the project.  The decision of the judges is final.  If any violation of the rules is presented to the awards committee within 30 days of announcing the regional awards, the project will be reviewed by the awards committee, provided appropriate evidence is presented.  The national awards committee reserves the right to rescind an award with such violation, and the committee will forward the ethics issue to the local chapter for review.  In the case of a member at large, the national bylaws committee will address.
  • ·         Provide all the project photos displayed in your entry on a CD and submit with the other required documents.  Photos on this CD must be high resolution (300 dpi or better), and in JPG, TIFF, or EPS format.  Larger photos give us more flexibility since we can always make them smaller.  We may not be able to make them larger without losing quality.  This CD will not be returned.

The Judging Process

Winners are selected by an impartial panel of judges who are experts from within the industry.  The evaluation process is done without revealing company names.  A DelCY Award Winner is an entry that demonstrates remodeling excellence.  Entries are judged on functionality, problem solving, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation, degree of difficulty and entry presentation.

All entries are judged against other submissions from the same region in the same category to select regional winners.  All regional winning entries are then re-judged to select the national winner in each category.  On rare occasions, no winner is selected in a particular category if NARI standards are not met.  Judges are not required to present regional or national awards in every category, and the decision of the judges is final.  The following are guidelines to evaluate each entry: 

·         Regional Judging

A group of judges begins by individually comparing all the entries in a category within our region.  They may take a preliminary review of that group of entries, and then score the entries one by one, using the judge’s ballot provided.  They do not discuss the entries during this phase of the process, and they do not see other judge’s score sheets.  Once a category within a region is completed, the ballots are collected and tallied by DelChester staff members.  A regional score for each entry is obtained by averaging the judge’s scores.  The highest average score obtained, providing the project represents at least a “better than average approach or result,” determines the regional winner for each category.   

.

A sample of the judge’s ballot is available at the end of this document.  The judging criteria may be modified as needed.

Review Your Work

Each year several entries receive point deductions (two points per violation), or worse, are disqualified, due to not adhering to a few simple rules. Reasons for point deductions or disqualification may include:

·         Entry received after December 20

·         Duplicate entry-the same portion of a project was featured in more than one entry

·         Project finish date is outside of time frame

·         Project does not contain any before photos

·         Photo alterations or enhancements beyond changing brightness, contrast, or sharpness

·         Project cost not shown on first page of entry

·         Binder cover page provided was not used

·         All required signatures or forms not provided

·         Project completion date not provided

·         Complete set of photos on CD not provided

·         Entry exceeded page limit

·         Member identity revealed in entry or people included in photographs

All DelCY winners often edge out the competition by just one point.  Don’t let point deductions place another entry ahead of yours.  Careful review of the following pages and forms for accuracy and completeness will keep you off the violation list.  Violations and disqualifications are at the judge’s discretion.

Rules & Guidelines

Getting Started

1)     NARI contractor members in good standing are eligible for individual entries or as a team leader for a fee of $165 per project.  This fee includes the cost of returning your binder after judging.  All entry fees are nonrefundable, non-transferable, and cannot be carried over to subsequent years.

2)     Team entries are permitted in each project category.  All team members must be NARI members and need to complete and sign the team entry section of the entry form.  A fee of $70.00 applies to each team member per project.  Trophies are awarded to each team member if project is selected as a winner.

3)     As soon as payment is processed, you will be sent an entry number(s) via email.  Insert the entry number in the designated places on the 2019 CotY Forms.  Entry numbers will not be issued without payment. 

4)     Obtain entry materials.  You will need:

·         1” white, clear view 3-ring binder, with pockets inside the front and back cover.

·         Sixteen Clear plastic sleeves for displaying your project and submitting required forms.  Don’t go cheap on these.  If these sleeves break out of the binder during shipping, the pages may not be judged in the order you intended.

5)     Build your entry and send to NARI National for receipt by 5 pm ET, December 20, 2018.

Preparing Your Binder

1)     Project finish date must be between July 1, 2017 and November 30, 2018.  Only entries that have never been submitted in prior NARI National CotY contests are eligible.

2)     All projects entered in DelCY categories must be an improvement or addition to an existing structure.  Entries for new structures will not be accepted except where specifically noted.

3)     The same project may only be entered in one category.  If you have a large, multi-area project, and would like to enter just a portion of it, it’s fine to break it down.  For example, if your project included the remodel of an entire house, you can enter an Entire House category OR enter a kitchen category, an interior category, and two bathroom categories, etc.  Keep in mind you will have to break out costs for each project on each entry form.  If you enter your project in this way, you will not be able to enter any of the same remodeled areas again.

4)     For each entry, slide the first page of this document (with sponsor logos, either color or b/w) behind the clear cover of the view binder. 

                                                      

5)     The first plastic sleeve in the entry is for the entry materials and will be removed upon arrival at DelChester NARI Office.  These items will may not be returned to you, so be sure to make copies for yourself before sending these in.  This first sleeve must include:   

a)     Entry Form – and Team Entrant section, if applicable.  This form needs to be completed, signed by the homeowner and contractor, and the contractor’s signature needs to be notarized.  The entry number emailed to you after purchase of your DelCY entry goes on this form. This is the only place member company name(s) can be revealed.

b)    Photographer’s Release – The owner of the photographs (professional photographer, contractor, homeowner, etc.) must complete and sign this form.  Use more than one release if necessary.  This form must be witnessed and cannot be altered.

c)     Manufacturers, Suppliers, and Brands – This information is very important.  Just check off the National member companies (products or services) you used on this project.

d)    Duplicate set of photos – Include a CD of duplicate photos of those shown in your binder.  Use high resolution (300 dpi or better), and in JPG, TIFF, or EPS format.  Please include the all project photos that were displayed in your binder. 

6)     The remainder of your entry can be presented in up to 15 pages front and back, or 30 pages, one-sided.

a)     The first page of the presentation must include the total project cost in the upper right corner.  This total must match the total on the Entry Form, Homeowners Affidavit section.  Cost is defined as contract price, all extras, change orders and the fair market value of materials and products that were purchased, sweat-equity and in-kind services provided, and/or any subcontract work.  The cost of all homeowner provided products, services, or labor should be included in this cost.  All mark-ups and profit should be included in the cost provided.  For member-owned projects, costs should include normal mark-ups as if the project was contracted to an outside client.

b)    If you are including drawings that will not fit into a sleeve, insert them into the back pocket of the binder.  They should not extend over the top or side of the binder, and will count as one page (one sleeve, front and back) of your total page count.

7)     Shortly after the December 20 deadline, an email confirming receipt of binders will be sent to all entrants.  Those wishing to confirm receipt of an entry sooner should track the package through the shipper.  Due to the volume of entries received, it is not possible to confirm receipt of CotY binder entries by phone.

8)     Entry binders will be returned by April 10, 2019.  Please keep this time frame in mind as you plan entries for other remodeling industry awards programs.

The DelChester NARI Awards Committee has made every effort to make this competition fair, open, and available to all DelChester NARI contractor members in good standing.  It is important that the rules of the competition are closely followed.  The Awards Committee and DelCY Judges reserve the right to disqualify, adjust the category, or deduct points from any entry that does not follow these rules and guidelines, without prior notice.
