International Competition Rules 2000
Bow judging will be accomplished by three (3) judges and will be divided into two (2) rounds-- evaluation and medal. In the evaluation round, each bow will be evaluated by each judge independently and without discussion with the other judges.
Bow evaluation will consist of six categories, totaling 100 points.
Bows that receive a recommendation from at least one (1) workmanship judge will receive at least a Certificate of Merit. During the medal round, the Certificate of Merit bows from the evaluation round will be reviewed by all judges working together. Bows which receive a unanimous vote as showing superior workmanship will be designated Gold Medal winners.
