Competition plays an important role in academic achievement because it spurs students to pursue excellence. It’s important for students who work hard to be recognized and rewarded. On the other side, it gives the idea to others what they need to improve in order to be better. In either way it is motivated and challenging.
Omiš Guitar Fest jury members are top world guitar professors, very prudently chosen by the organizer. For Omiš Guitar Fest, except the jury members, it is of extreme importance the evaluation methodology, therefore 3 most important principles need to be respected: professionalism, objectivity and transparency. As for the evaluation process itself it’s very strictly defined and respected by the jury: each jury member evaluates the student with mark from 0 to 100. Then, the highest note and the lowest note are being extracted. The rest of the notes are calculated in arithmetic mean which represents the final note of the student.
