Judging

Design & Architecture Judging

Committee members review each builder’s GALA entry. However, the process does not end here. GALA judges consider a combination of design, excellence, value and overall quality of living. Interior Design/Merchandising entries will be judged by a distinguished panel of judges selected for their expertise in new home design, sales and marketing. This year, the judging will be conducted onsite. Judges will meet and judge each entry as a team. Judges will also complete the judging forms as a team. After all judging forms are completed, the judging team selects the GALA winners. All completed judging forms and winning selections are turned into NVBIA.

Sales & Marketing Judging 

All marketing entries will be judged in July by judging teams composed of experts in new home design, sales and marketing. Sales Achievement Finalists will be judged by an experienced and distinguished panel of sales professionals. Finalists will be notified of the time and date for their scheduled interview appointments at NVBIA offices. GALA Judges reserve the right not to bestow an award in any category or to bestow only an award of merit. Criteria for judging each category are listed under the individual categories. Judges with personal involvement in an entry are disqualified from judging that entry. Judges reserve the right to move an entry into another category.

Judging

Design & Architecture Judging

Committee members review each builder’s GALA entry. However, the process does not end here. GALA judges consider a combination of design, excellence, value and overall quality of living. Interior Design/Merchandising entries will be judged by a distinguished panel of judges selected for their expertise in new home design, sales and marketing. This year, the judging will be conducted onsite. Judges will meet and judge each entry as a team. Judges will also complete the judging forms as a team. After all judging forms are completed, the judging team selects the GALA winners. All completed judging forms and winning selections are turned into NVBIA.

Sales & Marketing Judging 

All marketing entries will be judged in July by judging teams composed of experts in new home design, sales and marketing. Sales Achievement Finalists will be judged by an experienced and distinguished panel of sales professionals. Finalists will be notified of the time and date for their scheduled interview appointments at NVBIA offices. GALA Judges reserve the right not to bestow an award in any category or to bestow only an award of merit. Criteria for judging each category are listed under the individual categories. Judges with personal involvement in an entry are disqualified from judging that entry. Judges reserve the right to move an entry into another category.
