PWO-EXPO 2022 applies the Virtuafil Simple judging standards.

Simple Judging Standards are intended to introduce novice collectors or novice exhibitors to the philatelic exhibiting experience, in an informal, non-academic and enjoyable way.

The exhibition will use an informal judging method where the Jury Members will award overall points, on a scale from 5 to 10, for each exhibit, based on their personal/professional opinion of the exhibit. The grades of award medals for PWO-EXPO 2022 are specified on the Classes and Class Groups page. For each exhibit, the participant will be able to login to their Virtuafil account and download an individual score sheet. This will include not only the total score received but also recommendations by the evaluating jury member for improving their site. An example of a score sheets is displayed below:
