Hi Do you think AS. will have new readers for this round of the competition? I mean, If they are looking for diversity among the work submitted here, wouldn't that be essential? Because if they don't, I think this no longer is a competition. At least it isn't for those of us here that didn't make the top 50. Logically, if you have the same readers, then most likely you will have the same results. Which means this has basically become a promotional tool for those 50. I'm looking forward to seeing the results from the second phase of this competition. New readers have different opinions and those opinions should bring about different results. Remember it's the readers that pass the work to the judges. For example, all the previous contest winners from other places didn't do particularly well here. (NEW CONTEST, different readers.) What are your thoughts?
