IODC 2023 WINNERS
Thank you to all our entrants!
Join us in congratulating them
A note about winners:
it is possible for some categories to end up not having a winner. This could happen for several reasons. It may be that there were no entries for a certain category and age group. It may end up that the Director and Judges decide that the entries for a specific category or age group do not meet the minimum technical and artistic level in order to place.
Unlike some competitions, where if there is only one entry in a category they automatically win the category, at IODC we do not do that. We want an IODC medallion to really mean something. We want medallion and certificate recipients to be proud of it, to know that they have truly earned it— and to know that they did not get it by default, simply by showing up.*
And, we want it to be known to all of our international contacts, collaborators and partners who are show producers and casting directors to know that if they see IODC on a job applicant's CV/resumé— they know right away that the person is worth taking a second look at. Even if you are a Finalist who did not win a medal or certificate.
So instead, we offer judges' feedback that will hopefully contribute to participants improve— so that they can come back to the following year's competition even stronger.
*Note that if you do not see a particular category/style/age group in the Winners Gallery below, it means that there was no winner for that category.
