ABBY Award Judging
To insure objectivity, entries are judged by a panel of broadcast experts
from outside the state of Alabama.
Judges usually select a first place winner in each category but are under no
obligation to do so and may choose to award no
prize in a category. There will only be one winner in each category.
Judges may choose to recognize other
outstanding work in a category without awarding an ABBY. This recognition will
be honored with a Judges Award
The decision of
the judges is final.
