2012 World Championship caption award winners
DCI Hall of Fame member David Kampschroer
presents the John Brazale Visual Performance Award to
Carolina Crown and the Blue Devils.
Since 2001, caption awards at the Drum Corps International World Championships have been determined by averaging the scores from all three nights of the World Championship competition.
According to the DCI rulebook:
At the World Championships, World Class caption awards will be determined by averaging scores at Prelims, Semifinals, and Finals.
BEST BRASS – based on Music Brass score
BEST PERCUSSION – based on Music Percussion score
BEST VISUAL – based on Visual Proficiency score
BEST COLOR GUARD – based on Visual Color Guard score
BEST OVERALL GENERAL EFFECT – based on combining General Effect Music and General Effect Visual scores
The average for each double-paneled caption will be used in determining caption awards.
