Judging/Judging Form


iGEM 2018 Judging Forms

Judging Forms serve an essential role in the iGEM competition. The Judging Form is the primary way you will communicate your team's achievements with the judges.

When judges evaluate your team, they will look at your wiki, see your presentation, and come visit you at your poster. But judges have many wikis to evaluate and sometimes pages can be hard to find. They also might not know which of your parts is the best one, or the one they should evaluate for the "Best New Basic Part" or "Best New Composite Part" award.

Judging forms include evaluation criteria for medals, so make sure you have met the medal criteria for your track. Judging forms also allow teams to nominate themselves for special prizes.

Failure to successfully complete the Judging Form will prevent the judges from evaluating your team for medals and/or prizes.

Completing your Judging Form

Deadline: October 12th at 11:59PM EDT.

Please note this deadline is five days BEFORE Wiki Freeze (Oct 17) and the Registry Freeze (Oct 17) and is a hard deadline. No extensions will be provided, no exceptions!

Judging Form Notes

  1. You must complete your judging form by filling in the 150 word description boxes AND editing the required link page on your wiki.
  2. You don't need to finish all wiki pages by October 12, but you MUST remove the alert box for any awards you plan to compete for. See here for more information: https://2018.igem.org/Judging/Pages_for_Awards
  3. You MUST create Registry Part Pages (see Add a Part for details) for all parts that you intend to submit for medal criteria and for part awards. The Registry Freeze will take place on October 17, 11:59PM EDT, so all Pages must be created and updated by that deadline. You cannot add part pages to the judging form after the judging form deadline.
  4. You MUST send your DNA parts by the "ship-by" deadline of October 10, 11:59PM EDT for those parts to count towards medal criteria and part awards.
  5. The judging form MUST be finalized on Friday October 12 by 11:59PM EDT. You can not come back to edit it later and you will not be eligible for any awards that you don't tell us about on the judging form. This is a hard deadline and no extensions will be allowed (no exceptions!).
