Please post below if you are interesting in judging.

By default each judge is provided with 3 categories to judge. Please indicate if you would like more.

Slots filled: 41/53 (93 filled slots would be peak goal).

Also post likes or dislikes for judging and we will try to accommodate.

Categories:

GENRE AWARDS
 
 
Best Adventure Comic:
Quests, missions, explorations, and/or other dangerous or exciting ventures.
  
Best Adult-oriented Comic:
A-rated comics. XXX No one under 18 admitted! Live nudes! Or excessive violence. Or both!
 
Best All Ages Comic:
Child-friendly comics that the whole family can enjoy.
 
Best Anthropomorphic Comic:
They act like people and think like people, but they look like foxes or dolphins or toasters.
 
Best Community Project:
Comics and projects that bring together a variety of DD members for
massive synergy! (DD Awards are not eligible, for giving ourselves an
award would create a paradox vortex from which there is no escape.)
 
 
Best Fantasy Comic:
Magical, mythical, mystical, marvelous. Comics set in fantastical
settings, involving magic or mythical creatures, abilities, or beings.
 
Best Horror Comic:
The dark, scary, and twisted. Monsters, psychological thrillers, and
 ax-wielding psychos all have their place among these wonderfully
horrific comics.
 
Best Humor Comic:
Gags, jokes, lols, roflmaos, and such. Format and subject matter aren't important. It just has to make you laugh.
  
Best Mystery/Crime/Noir:
Crime drama, police, mobsters, mysteries, hard-boiled detectives, and/or meddling kids.
  
Best Parody/Tribute:
Comics that use the characters, worlds, or creations of other creators. It's not copyright infringement! It's an homage!
  
Best Philosophical/Political Comic:
Make-you-think comics that address deep topics from the spiritual and philosophical to the cultural or political.
 
Best Sci-fi Comic:
A form of speculative fiction so named because the fantastical
elements are rooted in or explained by actual or fictional scientific
theory.
 
 
Best Superhero Comic:
Too super for other categories.
 
 
~~~~~
 
 
STYLE AWARDS
 
3D/Poser:  
Comics that make use of the THIRD DIMENSION (oo, ah) or appear to.
 
*Best Action Within A Comic  :
Chase scenes, fights, big explosions; CRASH POW ZOOM you know the stuff
  
Best Manga Style Comic:
Comics inspired by the artistic style and conventions of Japanese cartooning.
 
 
Best Romance in a Comic:
Girl/boy, boy/boy, girl/girl, girl/girl/boy, man/alien, or whatever.
 It's all about LOVE! Love love love love love love love love. Maybe
some hate too, and some other things, but romantic relationship(s) take
center stage.
  
Most Deliciously Offensive:
These f&%#@ comics might p^@(# you the f*^^@* off.
 
~~~~~
 
TECHNICAL AWARDS
 
Best Background Art:
The background, setting, environment, and surroundings. Including architecture, scenery, furniture, vehicles, etc.

 expressions, and clothing (but not speech, mannerisms, or
personality/actions).
 
Best Comic Layouts:
The components of visual storytelling that harmonize the artwork

position, placement of speech balloons, lettering, and general
readability.

It's all about what they say and how they say it.
 
Best Plot Development:
The overall story composition and pacing, and the use of storytelling elements.
 
**Best Use of Medium:
Whether the comic is in black and white, full color, photography, or 3D rendering, the author does a good job at using it.

Contrary to popular belief, the protagonist is the main character of the story whether they are good or evil.

I'd be happy to judge again. Since I don't have an eligible comic this year, I'm available to judge any category. I probably wouldn't be too useful judging Best Romance or Best Mystery, or Manga, because they're not genres I'm familiar with. Other than that, I can judge anything.

I'm here! I prefer technical award judging. I can do several of those.

Others if needed later.

Please not adult or most offensive categories.

I'm in for any 3 categories. Unfortunately I think that's all I'll be able to judge for the moment but I'll let you know if things open up for me.

Hello! This is my first year on the awards panel and I am new to judging, but I am pretty familiar with most of the current updating comics on TheDuck this year.

I am available to judge any category.

I'll take 3.

Some that appeal to me (and would, most likely, not conflict with my work if nominated):
  • Humor
  • Superhero
  • Fantasy
  • Romance
  • Improved Art
  • Use of Medium

Hey I've been approved!  I guess I thought I'd get an email saying so... Anyway... Nice!
.
So, my first time as a Judge, so let's go easy on me!  Give me Horror!, Adult!, and Offensive! lol
.
Seriously, I don't really have a problem with any award category, but I'd rather not be involved in the 'Big Three'!
.
And I supposed I'll do the standard three, unless there a dire need for me to do more.
