I'm an Affiliated Juror in Training, so I've never sat on an IPC panel, but I have a few questions.

Someone please describe to me, in detail, about how images are selected for the Loan Collection.
I know about the tiddly-winks but I'm a little gray on how many each judge gets, and how they are applied to images.
And, are there catagories for the Loan Collection?, ie: XX amount for Portraits, XX amount for Illustrative, ect.

Do images that have some Loan votes, but not all, go into the Showcase Collection?

I'm told that panel consists of 6, or is it 5 and an alternate, just like district?

Your help is mucho appreciado!!
