The panel is made up of 5 members with myself acting as their facilitator. It is this panel of members who will choose their favourite 3 stories and
send them to me.
When all 5 send their picks to me, I'll be sending the totals back to the panel until agreement is reached and the three finalists picked. Usually
takes a few days of U2U's, but, in my experience, is the best and fairest way to work things out.
As to who
, only I know all 5 judges. None know who the others are and will never know. In this way, their initial choices are theirs alone
without any prompting from the others (or myself).
The judges are all volunteers who U2U in response to a request normally found within the Opening post of a contest. Once enough volunteers come
forward, the request is removed.
