Additional Rules& Regulations.
Judging criteria:
The judging is blind, meaning only the models will be seen by each judge, with the exception of the Fantasy category. The judges will have no knowledge of which technician created which set of lashes. Models will be identified by numbers on wristbands randomly assigned on the arena. Judges do not judge every aspect of the set. Each judge is given aspects out of 10 to judge. This way they can concentrate on a few aspects of the lashes, rather than all and helps to keep the judging consistent. It also stops any one judge from drastically raising or lowering a competitor’s score, since they do not judge all 10 points.

This method of judging makes the process a bit quicker, which is good in larger competitions like this. Every effort is made to ensure judges are a mix of experts from around the world. It is your responsibility to read all the rules and obtain clarification on any you are not 100% certain of. If you compete and are judged with a deduction due to a rule that you did not interpret the way it was meant, it’s too late to change this at the competition. Judge’s decisions are final and all entries are judged on the exact same criteria. Have all your questions clarified before the competition to ensure a more satisfying experience.
