D.A.G. TOP AWARDS
DAG Competitions and Qualified Competitions (at DAG Supported Events) will be judged by teams of DAG experienced judges. The rules of each competition may be different. Please check the rules for your event. The rules in a competition are for the judges to call the work as they see it. The judges' decision is final. Entries that are registered in the wrong category will be judged but excluded from top awards. For more information, see your competition invitation.
Top Awards offered at each event will be different. If you are going for a particular Top Award, be sure it is available at the event you wish to attend.
