This is an entirely different aspect of the contest where the aim is to provide constructive feedback for the Pillage the Village entries.
What is constructive feedback?
This is where the writer evaluates what they like and dislike about a creation, and then relays the information objectively to the
builder. The important point is to express honest opinions in a helpful manner, whether good or bad. If you can do that creatively at the same time, you just might have what it takes to win some fabulous prizes.
Where does this happen?
First, you need to express an interest in participating in this aspect of the contest by posting in this thread. After that, all you do is comment on the entries in their own threads and the staff will observe and judge the quality of your efforts.
How will this be judged?
The staff will assess the Creative Critic Award on the following criteria:
- The usefulness of the information provided.
- The professionalism in which the information is conveyed.
- Correct spelling, grammar and punctuation. (We will be lenient if English is your second language but for primary English speakers there are NO excuses!)
- The volume of quality creative criticism you provide.
You don't have write about every single aspect of the MOC in one post, but it is recommended you focus upon something on interest and write a good paragraph about it.
How do I enter?
Again, all you need to do is express a desire to join by posting in this thread and then commenting on the entries in their own entry threads. From the moment you post here, any posts you make will be under evaluation so think carefully about what you say.
When does it start?
As soon as you post here!
Are there prizes?
Yes, check out the The biggest Prize Pool in AFOL fansite history? for more information.
As always, the judge's decisions are final.
The best Creative Critics will provide ongoing feedback, so it's not necessarily a critique once and then wait until contest's end to receive your result. Find ways to continually provide feedback and you'll have a definite advantage.
