About the judging...
While this contest was open for entries I was browsing the Soup and too often I found out I was reading a poem for my contest. The title of the poem was different from the ones I asked for this contest and therefore no reason to stop me from reading............I want to judge blind and all those poems I had to exclude from further judging.
The poems with the right title for the contest I could avoid reading. And so I did!
(Of course after judging no limitation to entitle your poem differently)
