JUDGES PROGRAM

World Judging Panel


IGA strives to maintain a panel of active and experienced Judges. Judges who are part of the IGA WJP are free to judge any events, be members of other associations and participate in any competitions or seminars. IGA does not set limits on their judges. We encourage our Judges to build their profiles and gain experience.

IGA WJP will receive invitations from IGA HQ to judge events in China, South East Asia, Australia, Europe and the Americas.

IGA WJP work and communicate together to build a strong relationship and to maintain IGA judging standards across the world. Submit your profile. Join Us!
