The Salt & Burn Awards will be opening up for nominations at the start of July (I haven't worked out the date yet - it depends when I can get online for long enough to ensure it doesn't crash). We need judges.
Judges are assigned a category/categories and required to read each story nominated in that category. They are then asked to compile a rating for each story based on a formula and criteria which I (as webmistress and chief judge) will supply to the volunteers.
We are looking for judges who will do their best to remain as objective as possible; and we are desperate for judges from all parts of the fandom. Gen, het, canon, AU, slash, wincest, RPS, angst, comedy - fans of all genres are invited to apply.
You don't need to have judged at an awards site before, you don't need to be a writer, you don't even need to be a regular reader.
All we would ask is that you love the show and are willing to read fanfic.
(if you are absolutely averse to reading fic within a particular category, you are perfectly welcome to request that in your application and we'll accomodate you as best as we're able.
