Where possible the Inverness Festival Association engages adjudicators who are registered with The British and International Federation of Festivals for Music, Speech and Dance. All performers are adjudicated and given a written appraisal of their performance.

During the adjudication of a class up to the first three places will be announced, depending on the number of competitors in each class.
