If they only need people for the jury, it may be workable. There are
several countries with jury members from a different one. It's a nice
way to share the human resources. They are also clearly neutral on which
photo monument is the best, while local members could be accused of a
bias for their region. That said, I don't think a country would really
like a jury composed exclusively of foreign people.
If noone on the jury can read the local language, that is also likely to
be a problem when evaulating them.
