What People Are Saying

YOUR COMMENTS:

Wiggan: "By far my favorite portion of this competion was the Q&A where you could submit a question, and get it answered by the pundit.... I think that portion of the competition should force the pundit to respond to the readers, and penalize them if they do not."

MsJS: "As for audience participation, if 3-4 commenters from one round were selected to assist the judges, then WaPo might generate more comments and interest from one round to the next."

gpadem: "First, the initial entry of 400 words is more an exercise in editing than putting together a cogent, engaging piece to wow the audience. The limited size of the initial entry leaves nuance and complexity by the wayside. Secondly, the critiques by the editorial staff were downright snarky. Take any major Pulitzer columnist, get a three year old column, change the name and see how the judges react."
