Sorry, I added a sentence in the wrong space, so my message is choppy.  The sentence "For example..." should come after the question about categories.

Hi Patrick,


I was at the Broadripple open jurying and found it to be so interesting.  I did not have an entry, so had no special reason for going aside from my interest in seeing the process.  I have several questions, however, and left a message for you after the jurying process.  I wonder if there is a rubric for the scoring?  Also, are there catagories amid the process? Are the jurors representative of different types of art?  For example, do the booth shots get a separate score from the art shots?  How much does the cohesiveness of the art shots weigh in the jurying?

Thanks for your time in addressing these issues.
