JUDGING

JUDGING

  • All rounds are valued equally

AMATEURS & PROS

  • Throughout each judging round the head judge may shuffle the athletes around in order to make better comparisons. It is safe to assume that the position where a competitor is standing when a round has ended is an indication of where that person has scored in the round. For instance the competitor in the center position has most likely won that round. The individuals to the left and right of center are in the 2nd place and 3rd place position and so on.  *Please be aware that this position is not a guaranteed placement. Positions are only an indication.
    • What competitors are judged on

      • Conditioning (how lean the body is)
      • Posing/Presentation (how well athletes move and display the physique when executing the poses…makeup & hair can effect scores for)
