Judging and rewards criterion
We are introducing a judging criteron in order to decide rewards. Based on feedback from you we have decided to make contests not purely a popularity contest. Going forward the top performing posts will go through an internal review to decide the winner. The highest performing posts will be reviewed further internally for accuracy, grammatical errors , story telling, grasp of language and other criteria and the winner be announced based on these criterion.
For this, we will select the 5 top performing posts based on engagement, upvotes comments etc. These top 5 posts will then go through an internal review with a judge who is an expert in the related field. The reward will then be given to that post/story as decided by the judge. For more information on judging criteria please look at our recent blog post here: Introducing a judging criteria for contests
