the frames will allow the presentation of 12 sheets of normal size;
11 frames (allowing for 132 pages of normal size) are allotted to those exhibits that received at least 85 points at a previous FIP or FEPA exhibition; any other exhibit receives 7 frames (allowing for 84 pages of normal size);
the jury will work online in the months before the exhibition, allowing a more thorough evaluation of the exhibits;
in each theme class the exhibits will be ranked in order of points assigned by the jury, with the exhibit with the highest score to be proclaimed as European Champion of that theme class, and thus be candidate for the Grand Prix;
during the award ceremony each juror shall present his/her own ranking of the very best exhibits included in the pool of candidates; the exhibit obtaining the highest total out of such rankings will be awarded the Grand Prix ECTP 2019.
