The adjudication panel is selected in two phases: selection by draw (more commonly known as mandating) and selection by vote (more commonly known as self-nomination).

All ADCRGs who had entries at any of the previous ten (10) World Championships are subject to mandating, minus those who adjudicated at any of the previous five (5) All-Ireland Championships or the previous five (5) World Championships and/or were mandated at any of the previous five (5) World Championships.  This system was temporarily suspended for 2022 due to Covid-19 and was reinstated for 2023. 


January 31 Update: Due to the right of a dancer being able to compete superseding the right of a self-nominated adjudicator being able to adjudicate, a member of the previously announced panel has had to withdraw. The next-in-line adjudicator was contacted and has accepted.  An additional adjudicator has withdrawn due to family obligations. The next-in-line adjudicator was contacted and has accepted.  Below is the current list.

March 06 Update: An adjudicator has withdrawn due to family commitments.  The new adjudicator does not have any conflicts, and does not cause any carryover or qualifiers.  Below is the current list.
