Hi Lily,
thank you for all the istructions.

Italy is organising the jury. We have a large amount of pictures, so we 
will have a preliminary phase of pre-jury, and than a meeting with the 
final jury, made by expert wikipedians and famous photographers. You 
will know the 10 winning photos until the term of 25th October.

I didn't organise this phase in the last edition, so every help with the 
tool is welcome (I'm not an expert in programming or complex wiki-tools, 
but I can trust in Nemo's support ;-) ).

Best regards,

>     Local jury set-up
>     National competitions typically have a jury with at least 3
>     members (the more photos, the more jury members). The local jury
>     set-up is usually defined based on the judging criteria you will
>     choose to go with. The international team recommends that,
>     depending on the number of photos you expect to have by the end of
>     the contest, you have 1-3 Wikimedians (maybe those with
>     quality/featured images on Commons), 1-3 people who are familiar
>     or are experts in the heritage of your country (especially the
>     monuments), and 1-3 people who are professional or (quality)
>     amateur photographers. Of course, all jury members should be
>     excluded from winning prizes awarded by the jury.  The national
>     jury can then nominate maximum 10 photos per country for the
>     international finale.
>     Jury process
>     The jury process on the national level is defined by each country.
>     The international team recommends the following process:
>     Round 1: Yes/No or rating
>     The goal of this round is to lower the number of competing photos
>     to 400-700. If your total number of pictures is less than 500, you
>     can skip this round.
>     Jury members are asked to vote yes/no for each photo they are
>     shown and are requested to stick to a maximum number of ‘yes’
>     votes (for example, 500). Based on these votes, a set of 400-700
>     photos is selected for the next round. If you have many photos,
>     you may have to do this round in two steps.
>     Round 2: Rating
>     The goal of this round is to come to a selection of the top-50
>     images. Jury members are asked to rate/score each image with 1-5
>     stars. Based on the average from their votes, the top-50 is
>     selected for the next round. If there are many pictures with
>     similar scores, the coordinator can choose to select a top-40,
>     top-60, etc.
>     Round 3: Live meeting or ranking
>     The goal of this round is to arrive at a final ranking and winning
>     pictures. If geographically feasible, the jury can meet in person.
>     The jury tool supports an alternative method: ranking. Each jury
>     member is asked to rank their favorite 20 photos in order. Based
>     on this ranking, points are awarded to each photo (20 for the
>     number 1, 19 for number 2, etc). The total number of points
>     determines the final result. Jury members are also asked to give a
>     reason for selecting their top images. You can use this latter
>     information to explain explain why the winner was selected, an
>     information that can be useful for your jury report and press
>     releases.
>     Jury tool
>     Unless you have a very small number of submissions (less than
>     100), it's usually efficient for your jury to use one of the
>     available tools
>     <https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Jury_tools>for judging
>     the photos. The international team would like to bring your
>     attention to two tools: ‘Montage’ and ‘WLX’. Below you can find
>     more information about these two tools. We suggest that you look
>     into these tools now, and make your choice soon.
>     Montage
>     Montage is the new tool that has been developed this year by
>     volunteers and per the request by the WLM international team.
>     There are two features of the tool that are worth pointing out:
>     The tool is designed and developed in a way that can accommodate
>     the recommended jury process explained above (yes/no, rating,
>     ranking features are supported). The developer team will also
>     guarantee to provide timely support (within 24 hours) starting
>     October 1.
>     If you're a national jury coordinator or a jury member and want to
>     test the current version of the tool, please leave a note on the
>     tool’s discussion page
>     <https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons_talk:Montage>. If you
>     want to have a 1:1 conversation with one of the developers, please
>     leave a message using the same link. You should feel free to leave
>     questions/comments about the tool in the same page. If you are
>     familiar with GitHub, you can also create issues on GitHub
>     <https://github.com/hatnote/montage/issues>. Please note that the
>     developers will continue adding features and smoothing the
>     workflow until October 1, what you will test now will give you a
>     sense of the basics you should expect. :)
>     What is essential for you to be able to start the jury process on
>     October 1 using Montage is the Wikimedia usernames of your jury
>     members (if they don't have an account, please ask them to open
>     one). If you decide to go with Montage, please gather this
>     information sooner rather than later.
>     WLX
>     You can learn more about the tool here
>     <https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:WLX_Jury_Tool>. The
>     tool has been used by many countries as part of WLM and WLE
>     contests in the past years. If you're interested to use WLX,
>     please contact Ilya (WLX's tool developer) in the tool's talk page
>     <https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons_talk:WLX_Jury_Tool>.
>     If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to
>     ask them here or off-list.
