In this chapter, six methods for evaluating contest contributions are presented. The methods are described in terms of meaning and their implications on the presentation and submission of contributions. The methods are also mapped to the types of contest goals introduced in the activity Set goals, thereby providing guidance for choosing an evaluation method based on the contest goals. The chapter also contains a roadmap for choosing and preparing an evaluation method, as well as guidance as to how organisers should communicate evaluation results to the participants. The chapter is concluded with a running example section that describes experiences and lessons learned from several of the contests referred to in this book.
