Are you asking how to vote? If so, it is really up to you. The numbers represent the score you believe a particular image deserves. The idea is to judge the photo by its own merits and not compare it to other images in the challenge. So if you think a photo is truly terrible (bad composition, lighting, subject, colors, etc.) you might vote "1" (although if you do, people really appreciate knowing why you think it deserves such a low score). If you think an image is the epitome of perfection, you give it a 10. A "nice" image, which is neither wonderful nor awful, which is not memorable, is probably a 5.

When you have finished voting, some people look at the images by score, and adjust them up or down. Personally, I feel this is then adjusting the score by comparison to other images, which is not in the spirit of fair voting. But as I said, it's a personal decision how you do it.

Are you asking about the specific voting for this challenge?

Challenge Details: Make a contribution to Modern or Contemporary Art with a relevant photograph.
Challenge Type: Open Challenge
Challenge Rules: Advanced Editing
Extra Rules: This challenge has the added benefit of being juried.

Who makes up the jury? How is the vote calculated? Etc...
I have the same question.

The jury was appointed by Langdon. Each member was extensively interviewed and had to go through a series of tests (oddly enough, most of the "tests" involved Greek-style wrestling). The first round of survivors then received an NSA background check. Those who failed the check were deemed most likely to be a member of the "liberal elite" and therefore supremely qualified to pass judgment on your images.

Our method of selecting winners is simple. Each judge prints out their favorite images and staples them to their clothing. We then meet under a thatch dome in central Pennsylvania, where we are allowed to remove prints off of each other and attach them to ourselves. At the end of this process, we proceed to the vomitorium, where all prints are piled up and their staple holes counted. Whichever photo has the most holes is ritually burned, leaving soot stains on the vomitorium roof (we hope). These soot stains are then decoded into numbers by yours truly, using my knowledge of ancient language and hermeneutics. The image whose id most closely matches that number is chosen as the winner. Any disputes about the closest match are sent to Bob Barker for final decision.

Bob Barker?? You told me it was Drew Carey...

Now I'm so confused...

And wasn't there something about white smoke?

Thanks for the extremely vivid image of this "juried" group. I laughed hysterically for 5 minutes. Are there peepholes in the thatch dome? I want to see if you accept mine, then burn it ritualistically,

Thanks O.K. Wendy - just look into MIB Flashy Thingy and all will be explained;-)

The Jury is the same as last time around minus two individuals: ubique, who no longer lives here, and LevT, who's too busy with other activities to get involved this time around. The jurying process will be essentially the same. We have a very diverse set of viewpoints represented, and we will come to a gentle consensus that will leave none of us entirely thrilled but will be nevertheless acceptable to all.

That's the plan anyway. Nice digital bling will be awarded. The regular voting by the regular voters will still award the regular ribbons. The jury part is outside of that.

Feel free to ask me more questions, I seem to be nominated as Speaker-to-the-Town.

Oh for heaven's sake. I'm not paying attention. I just noticed the Fine Arts challenge. I didn't realize the question was about THAT challenge!

Ha. Perfect.

Hey. The word on the street is that alternative juries are forming for Fine Arts: Exhibit III. Yes this is perfectly legal as long as you abide by DPC voting rules. Why form an alt jury? To have the fun of thinking about and discussing the merit and impact of art photos. It does not take any glory away from the Official Jury - in fact - having other juries around means that the members of the Official Jury get their photos evaluated by a jury too! You might think of it as a Posthumous Award by committee.
So join in. Grab a bunch of your closest dpc buddies, then huddle, juggle & judge.
