The real prize awarded all participants of ToFF's 2014 E. A. C. is the publicity, exposure and international recognition accorded them through the Foundation’s promotion of the Competition.

The winners are determined using a “blind” scoring process by a distinguished panel of five judges who will be announced after the competition winners have been determined. The judges are selected from an international roster of individuals in the field of the arts.

Judges will score each work on a scale of 1 to 10. Scores will be tabulated and the works with highest point totals will be the winners.
