As Albuquerque is a small theatre community and as this is the first season of this show and it is not yet well known, it is likely that adjudicators and contestants may have worked together in the past or are connected in some way.

    1. Katharsis Media will strive to advertise and recruit from as many avenues as possible. 

    2. All contestants and adjudicators will be required to fill out an information card that asks them to identify any and all connections to any adjudicator/contestant, respectively.

    3. Adjudicators with connections that are likely to produce a bias will not be allowed to vote for the contestant(s) that they have said connection with.
