- the extent to which the artworks submitted followed figurative stereotypes and imitations;
- storytelling and narrative sequence: a general overview and the most frequent mistakes found;
- the critical points most discussed and the aspects that most led to an artwork being discarded in favour of another of very similar merit;
- online selection: advantages and flaws;
