USA-Midwest Online Judge Conference

08/15/2020 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Not Applicable

USA - Midwest

Date(s) - 08/15/2020
10:00 am - 5:00 pm


With in-store play and large gatherings still largely inadvisable here in the US, I wanted to give Judges a chance to congregate online and share experiences.

I’d like to have some presentations that provide insight on topics that are relevant in our current situation, including but not limited to:

-What we can do to improve and engage the Judge community during a time of physical separation.

-What we can do for the wider Magic community in the same vein.

-How we can provide value to LGSs and event organizers.

I’m always pleasantly surprised by the creativity that goes into presentation proposals, so even if your idea doesn’t fit neatly (or at all) into what I’ve mentioned so far, please apply – all proposals will be considered.

This conference is foil supported. Attendees will be required to stay engaged with presentations and participate to be eligible for foils. Participation may be measured via quizzes and form submissions. (As announced previously, foil support will be for certified USA-Midwest regional judges only – that means Level 1 or higher.)
