Jury

Each participating country had its own jury to select the local winners that will participate in the international final. Those jury members were presented in the local competition subpages rather than here. Most local winners were announced in early 2018.

On the international level there were two juries: one to select entries from countries without a local jury so that submissions from these countries could also advance to the final, and the main jury that selected the final winners.

The winners of the international competition were announced in summer 2018.

For the jurors, a link to their Wikidata item is provided.

The members of the international jury were:
