Judging/Judging Form


iGEM 2017 Judging Forms

Judging Forms serve an important purpose in iGEM by allowing you and your team to communicate your achievements with the judges.
When judges evaluate your team, they will look at your wiki, see your presentation, and come visit you at your poster. But judges have many wikis to evaluate and sometimes pages can be hard to find. They also might not know which of your parts is the best one, or the one they should evaluate for the "Best New Basic Part" or "Best New Composite Part" award.

The judging form allows you to communicate this information to the Judges so they don't miss the most important pages on your wiki and your best parts. Judging forms are based on medal criteria, so make sure you have met the medal criteria for your track. Judging forms also allow teams to self-nominate themselves for special prizes.

Completing your Judging Form

Please note this deadline is the week before wiki freeze and is a hard deadline. No extensions will be provided, no exceptions!

Judging Form Notes

  1. You must complete your judging form by filling in the 150 word description boxes AND editing the required link page on your wiki.
  2. You don't need to finish all wiki pages by the 27th of October, but you MUST remove the alert box for any awards you plan to compete for. See here for more information: https://2017.igem.org/Judging/Pages_for_Awards
  3. You MUST create part pages for all parts that you intend to submit for medal criteria and for part awards. You cannot add part pages to the judging form after the judging form deadline. You do not need to finish these pages before the judging form deadline, but the pages MUST have the alert div removed.
  4. You don't need to submit parts by the judging form deadline. However, you MUST send parts by the "ship-by" deadline at 11:59PM EDT on the October 27th for those parts to count towards medal criteria and part awards. Some part number boxes may say [Not Submitted]. This message will change when you enter a part shipment number before the 27th of October part deadline.
  5. The judging form MUST be finalized on Friday October 27th by 11:59PM EDT. You can not come back to edit it later and you will not be eligible for any awards that you don't tell us about on the judging form. This is a hard deadline and no extensions will be allowed (no exceptions!).
