Event Information

Please read the below information carefully as our compensation scheme has changed from our previous events.


Expectations


All staff members are expected to perform their duties in a professional manner that reflects positively on the rest of the event staff, tournamentcenter.eu and Wizards of the Coast. We expect you to have fun, be professional and contribute to a great atmosphere for everyone to be in.

 

In addition to making rulings, judges can be asked to assist with event logistics, such as managing lines, pushing chairs, picking up trash, handing out prizes.

 

We expect every staff members to dress professionally throughout the event weekend and hold up their personal hygiene . A black attire (black Magic Judge shirt, black pants, shoes and belt) is required for judges and staff clothing will be provided for staff members. If you do not have a  judge shirt, one will be provided for you (we will take orders after we have selected judges). Staff members and judges are expected to wear their badges when on duty and when entering the venue.

 

We aim to provide visitors to this Grand Prix an excellent experience. Therefore we expect all to staff members to have read the Event Staff FAQ and be able to relate all information it contains. We also have planned a mandatory TO briefing on Friday evening or Saturday morning before the start of your shift, handling topics such as security and customer service ...




Shifts


You may apply for one to three days, but your application must include Saturday. We may need some people to work Friday-Saturday (or Saturday only), please indicate whether you're available for this.


On Friday, we will need judges for four shifts: “early” starting at 09:00, “mid” starting at 11:30 and “late” starting at 15:00 (very few judges will be needed for the late shift), and "split": 09:00 to 13:30 and 17:30 to 22:00. If selected for the "split" shift, you may play a side event during your break. Please indicate your availability for these shifts if applying for Friday.


If applying for Sunday, we expect you to be available until 20:00. Some judges will be needed until about midnight on Sunday. Requests for specific shifts will be accommodated if possible.


Compensation


We provide a daily compensation rate plus a flat travel award. In addition, you may apply for extra travel sponsorship.


The rates are as follows:


Level 1: 1 box per day

Level 2: 1.5 boxes and 25 EUR per day, + 100 EUR travel award

Level 3: 2 boxes and 75 EUR per day, + 200 EUR travel award


(Note that the L3 travel award is now 200 EUR, and we're no longer offering "Specialist" sponsorship to L3s who are expected to fill certain roles. We may still offer extra sponsorship to certain L2s in key roles)

 

Travel sponsorship

We have made a slight change in how we're using our travel sponsorship budget. You may apply for 0 to 3 "travel units", each worth 50 EUR. Please indicate the minimum number of units you will accept. Our aim is to cover actual needs; someone who is driving to the event might only need one unit, while someone who is flying from Southern Europe would probably need 3.


Examples:


A Level 2 judge, working Saturday and Sunday with no travel sponsorship: 3 boxes and 150 EUR


A Level 2 judge, working Friday, Saturday and Sunday with full travel sponsorship: 4.5 boxes and 325 EUR


A Level 3 judge, working Saturday and Sunday, with full travel sponsorship: 4 boxes and 500 EUR


Each judge will also receive a main event playmat (judge playmats are not available), sleeve pack and a deckbox. In addition, each judge will receive a drink bottle at the first GP they work for tournamentcenter in 2016.


Standby judges


We need some standby judges for this event, including Friday. If selected as standby, you will be expected to come to the event. If not needed as a judge, you will receive 3 side event vouchers per day so you can play events. If selected as standby for Saturday, you have the option of teaming up with other standby judges to play the main event instead (if we activate you, the whole team will be activated). If we activate you as a judge, you will instead receive the normal judge compensation for your level. Activation may happen any time before the event or during the event itself.


Admin roles


We are also looking for admin staff: scorekeepers, prize wall, registration, VIP lounge and info point staff. Some people will be needed to work in an admin role on Friday and/or Sunday and in a judge role on Saturday. If selected for an admin role, we will contact you with a compensation offer.


Food


We will provide food for judges during their shifts.

If you have any allergies or are vegetarian/vegan, please share this with the TO in advance.


Contract


Every judge must sign a contract before their first shift. A contract template will be available in the files section of this page soon.
