).The pieces eligible for judging will be scored using deviantArt's Twenty-Point System for critiques. The systems is as follows: 5 Points for Vision
How is the platonic, romantic or familial kiss presented? What type of society does the kiss take place in?
Score higher if the vision created is innovative or different. 5 Points for Originality
Is there a twist on normal human society that other works don't have?
Score based on how you FEEL in the moment and when the kiss happens. 5 Points for Technique
Is the grammar, punctuation, and syntax strong?
How is sentence structure manipulated to get your head into the moment, into the kiss?
Score lower if any flaws in character and scene development take you away from the moment. 5 Points for Impact
If you keep thinking about the piece days after you've read it... That's a good impact. As Judges we will discuss our top picks for the Contest and compare/contrast our nominations to decide the winners.
