- If you have a blog article talking about your submission, I'd love to link to it from the One Page Dungeon Contest page.
Process: Here's how we'll determine the winners.
- Every judge nominates their favorite entries and proposes a category for each.
- We try to make sure that every judge has at least three of their nominations in the final list. The idea is to not only reflect popular opinion but to also capture some of the more eclectic entries out there. We'll make sure that every judge is well represented with three entries each.
- Based on the categories proposed in the first step, we try to assign a category to each entry on the list.
- The result is our release candidate 1. Judges gets to check whether their favorites are still on the list.
- We fix omissions and rename categories until we're happy. This is our release candidate 2.
- We revise everything until we're happy. We have our list of winners!
- If we have prizes (we currently don't) each judge gets to nominate their favorite entry for a prize.
- We publish our list of winners!
- Harald puts together a PDF of all the entries and a PDF of all the winners. We'll make these PDFs available for download at no cost.
