The New York International Cheese Competition medals will be awarded on a merit basis by a majority vote.
The judges will know the category and the price per pound of the products they are tasting. The judges are instructed to grant no awards or medals when, in their opinion, the cheeses are not ones they would import, distribute, buy or sell in their businesses based on product and price category.
Judges are asked to evaluate the cheese in silence until all panel members have finished their evaluation and then open a discussion to reach a consensus. Judge votes are recorded by a NYICC staff moderator. If there is a significant difference among the judges’ votes, panelists are encouraged to reach a consensus and, if needed, seek counsel from the Head Judge Adam Levy.
