Clarification on my origional post: There was no list of "rules" =
regarding what the judges would evaluate work on. Last year, the judges =
rated artworks and then left. When we were allowed in to see the final =
results, the judges were gone so I could not ask them for their =
reasoning. The only way I knew why the artworks had lost points was =
because of the notations on the slips of paper beside the artworks. Some =
of the artwork I had submitted had won various awards and blue ribbons =
at other shows, so I know it was quality work.
