Each production must have letters, at least one character, and a background to be qualified for completion.

The final productions are judged from 1 to 10 points per judge on the following:
1. Originality: A crucial aspect in graff- is it original?
2. Theme: Each production needs to have something thematic that ties it together (such as an underwater scene or cloud scene)
3. Color & Composition: Usage of color and the way the items in the mural are laid out
4. Can control & Technique: Are the lines clean and the fades smooth?
5. Unity: How well does all the artists work well to bring one cohesive piece together?

Organizers and judges selected do not tolerate bias or discrimination in any form including association, affiliation, creed, ethnicity, gender or otherwise. Leave egos at home. This is a positive event in the name of good spirited competition and artistic expression.
