Response to Problem with judging at the Euro is simple

"I hear stories in years before from judges who I have big respect for of certain chief judges telling them which models to look for"

I do think this is an instrumental part of any judging process where the verdicts are discussed between the judges. It becomes especially important if the competition tries to maintain a similar standard across classes. The chief judges responsibility is to keep an eye on this aspect and it often requires giving some hints to the class judges on how to do the job. In my mind "look for" is not equal to "give a medal".

But if you mean that the chief judge tells the judges which models should receive a medal in a class then this means either a) that the chief judge is not upp to the task or b)that the other judges are not up to the task. Basically the chief judge should interviene to judging of an individual model only if there is a clear breech of competition rules or a misinterpretation of rules by class judges. Class judges that let a chief judge dictate their ruling can only blame themselves for not standing up and arguing their case.

This year I was personally not very happy with judging of class 13 at Euro Militaire but I do not blame the system for it. Judges chose a strict line and there were many models that would have deserved some recognition that received none. But while there were many superb models on the table, there were very few real eye cathers this time and that may go a long way explaining the relatively low number of medals in the class. In some other classes, like vehicle vignettes, there were many unique entries and consequently also more metal on the table;-)
