Electronic Contest Entries

This was my first year to coordinate an electronic contest. I only had 12 entries in my category, should have been easy, right?

Uh.

Apparently I’m a kinesthetic person, and like the actual sorting of entries. Because sorting them electronically was a pain in the neck. You had to make copies of each entry, electronically (at least that was the only way I could think to do it) so I made folders for each judge.

Only when I sent the folders as attachments, no one could open them. Sigh.

Then you had people who didn’t save as .rtf and you had to reformat.

One person sent in her entry only it had comments from her critique partner in it! She would have seen it if she’d printed it out. I couldn’t get ahold of her to resend, so I cleaned it up myself.

I accidentally sent the same entries to 2 different people to judge. Never would have done that with paper entries ;)

The ONLY good thing is no trips to the post office.

Never again.

GOOD LUCK to everyone who entered the GH/Rita!!! Check in if you final!!!
