This is just half of the stories - you can find the other half in Poll 2.

You may vote for as many stories as you wish.

You may not change your votes once they are submitted.

The poll will close in two weeks, and the winners will be announced thereafter.

Read read read read read... Can we ask authors questions if we want to?

I see no reason why not - most authors would probably welcome the interaction. I know I love chatting about stuff I've written.

Yeah there are a lot of good ones in here.  I chose FOUR that I particularly enjoyed and would have chosen two more as well but they had some word choice issues that just made them sound awkward in places, even though I liked most everything about them.  

There was no criterion listed, and it said you had to LOVE them.  So four it is.  

I hesitate to offer critiques though.  Some authors said they specifically DIDNT want any!

My other question is, despite what we might think, this contest is ultimately being graded by the judges and not us, correct?

There's a prize for Reader's Choice, Dox.
And I'm sure others (points at oneself) would welcome critique!

As mentioned by Cake - there are multiple prizes. The Judges award a 1st and 2nd place. The Reader's Choice Award is the third prize, and all three winners receive prize support (if one of the Judge's selections wins the RC Polls, then the next highest vote earner will be granted the title).

I will admit, with how tight the competition is this year I might need to figure out how to handle a tie-breaker  pale

After the competition is over, will we be told what our scores were? If such a disclosure isn't automatic, can we ask what our scores were? Some of us may wish to know what areas we could use improvement in?

There is no official disclosure, and I'd personally likely never release scoring info. After the competition is over, if you drop me a PM I'll certainly paraphrase for you the judges' conversation as regards your story.

This presumes my other judge friends finish their reads Wink

Perhaps another, single-choice poll out of those who have tied?

Not a bad idea. I may steal it and claim it as my own if needed Wink

Question: it was stated earlier that the Readers' Choice Award would be the third-place award. Does that mean that if someone wins the Readers' Choice, but also took first or second in the judging, that the Reader's Choice would pass to the person who took second or third (depending) in reader votes?

That is correct.

If the winner of 1st or 2nd is also the winner of Reader's Choice, then the next highest winner of Reader's choice would receive the RC prize. If that one is also a 1st or 2nd prizewinner, than the 3rd selection of Reader's Choice would be chosen.
