Surely the judges comments are just as anonymous as the pictures being 
judged - unless some clever people recognise the style of 
writing/expression, there is no reason I can see for not printing the 
judges opinions below each picture when the competition has finished (of 
course only if the comments are printable :-) )

On second thoughts, that might be a real Pandora's Box - even more 
reason to do it!!
