Score Sheets

The Great Expectations contest encourages all contestants to review our score sheets and choose the appropriate category for their work. 

Our contest utilizes customized score sheets. With a possibility of 100 points, each score sheet contains two sections specific to each individual category.  All of our final round editors have agreed to use the score sheet for placements. This provides genuine editorial feedback for finalists.

The GE does not judge a micro-synopsis or BLURB. The finalists will be encouraged to submit an unjudged synopsis for the final editors.

FINAL VERSIONS are available for your viewing.
