What is the workflow of Top Pick's selection ?

Hi,

Last year I raised a question about the evaluation model of Top Picks and IOTD (IOTD and Top Picks Manifesto, pages: 1,2,3 … 19). As far as I know, the discussion was Astrobin's longest, but in my opinion it did not produce the results I expected.

Recently I saw that this year it was necessary to adjust the panel of decision makers and I remembered something that seemed to me more important:

What is the Top Picks selection criterion? Is it to the personal taste of each member of the jury or is there a typified model that the jury usually follows? If so, who validated it and where can it be consulted?

Thank you.

As far as I'm concerned, it's personal taste. I scan the full resolution photo, check the details, and skim the description and comments before selecting images.

I don't remember the exact details of how top picks are earned, but I know it takes more than one person involved in the IOTD process selecting a photo.

Thank you Ethan for your response.

I remember that Jean-Baptiste Auroux described a fairly detailed analysis workflow that could be slightly adjusted and adopted by all jury members.

I also remember that Roberto Colombari wanted to discuss this.

What credibility does a selection have that is based on each person's personal criteria?

But beyond the process of choosing Top Pick, we also need to choose members for the jury who understand the image. The jury can not be composed of members with little experience of image processing; you have to be people with experience.

So here are two important things to discuss: the Top Pick selection worflow and the qualifications needed to be a part of the jury.
