Call judging criteria?
« on: June 29, 2020, 02:22:05 PM »
Could someone explain the judging process?  Are calls judged mainly on sound?  How much do aesthetics, craftmanship, etc come into play?

I was under the impression calls were judged 50/50....looks and sound. But have been told otherwise by a few individuals

I don't know if all callmaking competitions follow the same guidelines but the NWTF lays out their criteria for the Grand Nationals in each category. It's here in the rules section. Just look at the division and then the specific category. They list the criteria for each category, usually five things, as well as the weight placed on each of those five criteria. https://customcalls.nwtf.org/?action=rules
