Atlantic City Boardwalk Holocaust Memorial  
The Judging Process

The competition was an open, two-stage design competition. At the first stage, digital submission of the design concept was online only. These were judged anonymously by members of our distinguished Jurors, who chose 13 finalists. Each finalist was awarded an honorarium of $2,500 to develop a three-dimensional model and a fully realized scheme for the site. All final presentations were publicly exhibited and judged at a convocation of the Jurors, and the winner was declared at a public ceremony. The Atlantic City Boardwalk Holocaust Memorial organization will enter into good faith negotiations with the winning competitor for a contract to provide the services necessary to realize the Memorial. Concurrently the design will be reviewed by the planning board and fine arts board of the city of Atlantic City. In the event the winning design is eventually built, the winner will be awarded a prize of $25,000 in addition to commensurate fees for services.
