Judge Conference

Welcome to the first In-Person Philippines conference of 2022! 

Due to the increasing number of in-person events in the country; it was decided that it’s about time for us to have our first in-person conference after more than two years. 

This conference is a single-track, foil-supported, hybrid conference with a cap of 50 participants.

This conference will be held in person at Neutral Grounds – Centris.

Due to the community focus of the event. This event is only open to Filipino Judges.

hybrid/digital option: more on this will be discussed below.

Application Deadline

Applications for attendees will close on May 27, 2022, Friday at 11:59 PM Manila Time Time.

Reason for the early cut-off: Since this event is primarily an in-person conference, foils will be distributed to the participants on-site after the event.

Thus, the foils will be requested ahead of time. Shipping from the US to the Philippines usually takes 30-45 days.

Eligibility and Foil Support

  • Foil support is available for all Judge Academy certified judge (Level 1, 2, or 3) attendees.
  • All attendees must attend all presentations scheduled.
  • A feedback form is still required and must be submitted before foils are distributed to those attending the conference on-site. The following day is the deadline for those attending digital.

Since this is a hybrid conference:

Some presenters may require the attendees to prepare stuff ahead of time (e.g. deck and copies of its decklist) so that they(attendees) can follow along during the exercises.
