The Judging Form is a deliverable because it serves 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, watch your presentation video, view your poster, and ask you questions during your assigned slot at the Virtual Giant Jamboree. All of this information is used during your evaluation.

Judging Forms include the criteria for medals, so make sure you review the Medal Criteria and carefully fill out the Judging Form to reflect the work you want the judges to evaluate for each criterion. Judging Forms also allow teams to nominate themselves for Special Prizes. The Judging Form uses the specific Pages for Awards for medals and awards, so please review those pages to make sure your team is putting the correct information on those pages.

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. The Judging Form presents this information to judges in a standardized way.

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