As a judge for the Realm Awards, your actions reflect on Realm Makers. As such, to judge for us, you must agree to the following to participate:

  • I will not divulge which categories or which books I am judging either during or after the contest.
  • If I elect to review books that I read during the contest at a retailer or on Goodreads, I will not divulge that I read or received them as part of the Realm Awards.
  • I will let the Awards committee know if there is a potential conflict with a book or category I have been assigned.
  • I will do my best to meet the deadlines assigned. If I cannot, I will inform the Awards committee at the earliest opportunity.
  • I will do my best to judge impartially.
