From October 16th 2020, when registrations for the competition are closed, the professional jury will start its work. These are all people who in their daily work deal with different facets of quilting. First the professional jury will assess all entries (digitally) with a grade from 0 to 10. This way the 25 nominees per category are established.
After receiving the quilts, the professional jury will assemble before December 15th and assess these 50 nominated works to determine the 20 finalists and top 3 per category plus the overall winner. There is a winner per category, an overall winner and winner of the Audience Award. The winners of Quilt of the year 2020 will be announced before the end of the year.
