The CA jurors work in multiple screening teams. Each category is divided between the screening teams so each group screens a portion of the entries. Each juror views the entries independently. Any juror can put an entry into the final voting by selecting it.

For finals, all jurors work as a single team. After the judges make their selections, their votes are tallied. A simple majority is usually required for a finalist to be selected a winner.
