Rules

MIBC OPEN 2024 SCORING

Scoring is evaluated on a 100-point scale and will be based on the following criteria:

1. Technical ability - 2. Artistic interpretation -  3. Musicality - 4. Overall presentation.

Awards will be given to the highest scores, not always coinciding with the placement of Gold, Silver and Bronze.

You may have the highest score, but not as high as for a Gold medal. Therefore you might get 1st place – Silver or Bronze Medal.

The judges’ individual scores will be averaged to make up the participant’s final score. Final awards and placement are at the discretion of the judges. All decisions are final and not open for discussion.
