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. The GAHBA and OBIE Committee have decided that all judging will be done electronically this year

Judges will have access to your online entries and will begin remote judging on Monday, July 26th through Friday, August 6th.

Personal Achievement candidates MUST be available for a personal phone interview on August 5 or 6. 

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.
