Jury

Each participating country has 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 should be announced in early 2020.

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

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

The members of the international jury are:
