You are clearly wrong - if it was about the best works, then why do they not include everyone who got 50? It is about SHOWCASING - exactly what you said, showing what year 12 students can do.
i know thats not what happens (all 50s getting into the yws)
go back and look at my last few posts in this thread.
that the yws should
be about the best works. and by best i mean the ones that the markers considered best. ie. the 49s, 50s etc. obviously this would be balanced out between a range of genres/styles.
its only my belief. just take for example the person who got 46 in this thread and got nominated, and the person who got 50 and didnt. i dont think this should happen, but it did, and you keep trying to convince me that its about interesting works and stuff. ok, it is. but i dont think this should be the case.
i got nominated so this whole argument means nothing to me anyway, im just arguing what i believe is a fair principle.
