I'm probably a heretic

For years I've griped about the documentation required for A&S competitions. With the exception of major competitions like Northern Lights, Ice Dragon, and Kingdom Champions, I think we often set the bar far too high (thus discouraging entrants), and when it isn't set there, it is too low/absent (leaving the judges and populace with little or no information).

The Shire of Coppertree's event this weekend has an A&S competition, which I was asked to coordinate. So I came up with a form I think addresses most of my concerns.

The form gets torn in half, and the side with the entrant's name gets kept for tallying the votes and announcing the winner/s, and the other half goes with the entry.

I'm not convinced there will be any entries, but if there are we'll see how it works out. This is me, putting my money where my mouth is.

That looks really functional and friendly. I'm interested to hear how it works in practice.

Thank you for doing this and for sharing it.

Be careful about the back. Make certain that the side they need to write is clearly identified. I can so see someone writing across either column and/or on the incorrect side for the judges to see.

Otherwise, I really like your form.

Well designed. I hope it is used, and more widely adopted.
