Request to Competition Secretary or Club Spokesperson

This questionnaire is now an online form (below), please fill in the details and submit.

For the last two years or so under the judge training/mentoring system we have been using a questionnaire which gets sent to clubs who use a trainee judge, to provide the Judge Accreditation Panel with information on how the trainee is developing:-

Your judge for this competition has applied to become a PSNZ accredited judge. As part of their preparation for this important role they must demonstrate, to the Accreditation Panel, that they have the attributes expected of accredited judges. These include presentations skills and the ability to apply a well-considered critique that fairly assesses an image and provides useful feedback to inform the author and the audience. Your feedback on their judging performance is an important part of our assessment of their suitability to become an accredited judge. Your honest feedback is invaluable and much appreciated.

We have been asked to make this questionnaire available to clubs to use for those judges who are already PSNZ Accredited.

If your club is going to complete this questionnaire and return it to the judge Accreditation Panel we ask that you do the following:-

  • Please let the judge know that you will be evaluating them
  • Ask if they are happy to be evaluated and advise that the form will be sent to the Judge Accreditation Panel 
  • Please advise that the Judge Accreditation Panel may contact them to discuss feedback

Please complete this form (below) after the judging.
