Judges log in to Judging either using unique their judging token in the /judging portal for the event, or with their Acclaim ID in the usual way and then clicking Judging Assignments.
A judge token will typically have a lifespan lasting until the end of the current scoring round(s).
Once the judge has used the token to log in to Acclaim, there may be some Event terms and conditions to be agreed to before clicking START.
