There are two rounds in CICLOPE Africa’s judging process. The first one is undertaken by the Executive Jury together with the Grand Jury, who watch and rank the entries online according to its excellence. The 5 (five) best ranked entries in each category will be considered finalists. This year, the final round of judging, where the Executive Jury discusses the finalist pieces and decide on the one best work in each category, will also be online. The Executive Jury will also award one Grand Prix for the best work of the year in the competition.
The entries selected by the Executive Jury as the best in their categories and the Grand Prix will automatically become finalists at CICLOPE Festival 2022 on the corresponding category. The winners will be announced on April 7th.
