Currently in the Judging Process (updated January 3, 2018)

2 posts in this topic

For frequently asked questions, visit the Judges Panel FAQ at the OCRWiki.

This is an informal service to give submitting artists and the public an idea of what's currently going through the judges panel so that anyone can see if a particular submission is there and if it's been evaluated.

This post is updated as the panel receives more mixes to judge and is kept as up to date as possible. Please note that the judges (NOT djpretzel) update this post, and they do not know where any one submission is beyond the panel; however, any submitting artist is welcome to message a judge and ask about their submission if this post hasn't been updated.

Submissions placed on the judges panel are judged as-is and may NOT be reworked in the middle of the judging process. Submissions are to be treated strictly as completed works and may be revised/resubmitted only after a decision has been reached. Minor fixes that do not alter the arrangement itself (e.g. eliminating clipping, new encoding, fading out a track with an abrupt cutoff) are acceptable.

If your submission doesn't appear here, you received an auto-confirmation letter, and you DIDN'T receive a form rejection letter, don't worry - the queue in the submissions inbox is very large, so it could take anywhere from several weeks to several months for OCR to initially review your submission and decide to either:

  • 1) Immediately accept with sent form acceptance letter (NOT listed in To Be Posted list below)
  • 2) Forward to the panel for voting (most often)
  • 3) Immediately reject with sent form rejection letter

Visit the Judges Panel FAQ for more information.

If no auto-confirmation letter was ever received after the submission was emailed, then it is very unlikely it reached the submissions inbox. Submissions must be sent to If a confirmation was received, you didn't receive a form rejection letter, your mix was submitted before the "Mixes subbed prior to" date listed at the beginning of this thread, and STILL doesn't show up on this post or the site, give the submission information to any one of the judges and they can decide whether or not to forward it to the panel; i.e., fall-through it, although nowadays rarely does a submission "fall through the cracks."

Remember, if you received an form rejection letter, your submission will not be evaluated by the panel.
