I served as one of the judges for five entries last year and found the quality of submissions good and the story ideas very creative. For beginning writers, it's a good way to get valuable suggestions for improvement from the judges, most of whom are published authors. One must enter with an open mind and a willingness to learn--there will be a lot of feedback to absorb.
