Badge configuration

In Award Force, badges can be used to highlight certain entries. For example, you may configure a gallery and wish to show which submissions earned Gold, Silver, or Bronze awards as shown below.

Badges in judging 

With badges applied to your judging score sets, including VIP and Qualifying judging modes, your judges have filtering options available. By simply clicking on the badge, judges can filter to view all entries with that badge applied.
