For competitions, our three judges see our images (both projected and prints) and have a little home-made gadget they can operate to show on an illuminated panel to indicate their scores to the controller - and those scores can only be seen by that controller. They can each score from 2 to 9. If there's a difference of more than four points between any two judges, which is rare, the image will come up again at the end and the panel are asked to reconsider their scores - in theory they could give the same points as in the first try but in practice they almost always come closer together. If they
the same, then that score remains.
Having a little sway in the club now, I've insisted that the panels comprise one person from the general 'art' world, one photo expert (local shop or pro) and one other (from almost any background). You'd expect that to come up with big differences in scoring but it's surprising how rarely their scores vary significantly.
