Apply to Be a Judge

ATOM is now calling for applications from prospective judges for the 2022 Collarts ATOM Awards.

We are seeking judges from both the education and screen industry sectors, as well as qualified and enthusiastic individuals with other backgrounds. Applicants are encouraged to apply from anywhere in the world since all judging is done online.

Judges will be selected based on several criteria including their professional expertise and qualifications, and previous ATOM Awards judging may also be looked at. Judges will have their photo (optional) and a short bio displayed on this website as well as in the 2022 Collarts ATOM Awards program, to be handed out at this year’s Student Awards Presentation and distributed as a PDF to accompany the Tertiary & Industry Awards Night. Click here to see how we presented last year’s judges.

All efforts will be made to ensure judges are allocated one of their preferred categories (or a very similar category), however this can’t be guaranteed – applicants must be willing to judge the category/ies they are assigned if accepted as a judge. In some cases, we may group two or more smaller categories together to assign to some judges.

Applicants must be available to complete their judging between Friday 15 July and Friday 29 July this year. The exact time commitment required will vary depending on the number and duration of entries being judged. It has tended to total around 4 hours in recent years, but our online system allows judging to be completed at any time (24/7) throughout the judging period.

Judges will need access to an internet-connected computer during the judging period, and will be responsible for ensuring their access is maintained until their judging has been completed.

We recommend judges use a large screen and good-quality speakers or headphones to experience their allocated entries at their best.

To apply to be a judge for the 2022 Collarts ATOM Awards, please submit the online application form accessible via the button below by 9am AEST, Monday 11 July 2022.

If you encounter any difficulties completing the application form, or if you have any questions about the judging process, please contact ATOM on +61 3 9525 5302 or at [email protected].
