Judging

Each entry will be judged on its own merit by a group of highly qualified, out-of-town judges who are selected by the OBIE Awards Committee for their expertise in building, remodeling, sales and new home marketing.

Only judges and HBA staff will be allowed to observe the judging. Due to the current state of the economy and the nation, the GAHBA and OBIE Committee have decided that all judging will be done electronically this year. This is unique to this year only and we fully intend to return to on site judging after this year. We thank you for understanding during these times.

Judges will have access to your online entries and will begin remote judging on Monday, July 27th through Friday, July 31st.

Personal Achievement candidates MUST be available for a personal phone interview on July 30 or 31. 

Judged entries must receive a score of at least 70 percent to win a gold or silver in any category.

The OBIE Awards Committee and/or Judges may re-categorize an entry if entered in an
incorrect category (i.e. the final sales price changes as a result of the sale.)

By entering this awards program, you agree to be bound by the policies and procedures of the OBIE Awards.
