EPY JUDGING PANEL

The Epy Awards are looking a group of community members to help with this year’s awards by being a judge! If you’re dedicated, passionate, hard-working, and committed, we want you on our team!

We are looking for community members that love reviewing stories and wish to be the voice for the community! We are looking for rational, reasonable and respectful people who have great critical reviewing skills, a sense of diplomacy and empathy, however, are still strict in regards to judging stories so that we can find the best stories!

If you think you are suitable for the job, apply to be part of our team!

  • Failure to meet deadlines on a regular basis will result in the removal of your position
  • Failure to inform your leaders about your inactivity will result in the removal of your position.

  • Failure to see through the entire Award process may possibly have you blacklisted (depending on each case).
  • Failure to follow regulations will be an immediate KICK. You have been warned.
  • Judges that perform well throughout the year will get the opportunity to be on the permanent team (Epy Board of Directors), who helps manage the entire process of the Epy Awards.

Due to the recent issues, we have increased our standard for requirements.
