Judge Entry Form

We will respond to you the next working day. If you have questions, please call us at 02-2876-1866 from 2:00 – 8:00 PM (Monday – Friday) and 9:30 AM – 6 PM (Saturday).

If you are new to judging, you must receive onsite face-to-face training from 7:30  8:30 AM before the tournament begins. If you are a student or an experienced judge, you may be assigned a round that conflicts with the training; in that case, you may skip the training.

Judges no longer need to run around trying to deliver ballots on time to the tab room in between rounds, as everything will be computerized with an online ballot. Don’t worry, online ballot is easier, just need to press two buttons: 1) START and 2) SUBMIT. This link teaches you how: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_0-QHikCBg&t=3s

Because we use online ballots, judges will require a device (laptop or phone) from which they can type up comments and submit ballots digitally.  

Please follow the Judge Steps below to be hired as a judge.
1. Obtain a free tabroom account.
2. Write a judge paradigm.
3. Learn how to use online ballot. 
4. Learn how to judge in general.
5. Submit Conflict of Interest: The tabroom system will block you from judging your own students (as much as possible). However, if there are any additional students (due to personal relationship or issues) you should not be judging, you must submit the list in advance.

We will do our best to have you judge what you prefer, but there is no guarantee that you will only judge your preference in times of need.  

Pay Scale for the hired judges (non-student) are approximately 2,500 – 3000 NT per 1 full day. However, if you are judging part time, it will be paid per round as below:
