defenestrationism.net adheres strictly to CLMP contest ethical models of visibility (not of sight/blindness, of see-through-ness).

 

Our contests are judged by a four person panel, with two weeks of online fan voting counted as an additional judge vote.  Finalists are selected by ed., publisher, owner Paul-Newell Reaves, and monitor, ed. eatstuf.  In the event of judge and fan votes being equal, Paul-Newell Reaves becomes tie-breaker.

 

 

Introducing our Judges:
