If this CD is a fundraiser, I'd strongly suggest having it judged primarily by those who know what sells and what does not. For example: established, successful producers and label owners, successful commercial film composers, etc.

I don't mean to discourage soliciting at least some judges from the academic and fine arts community, but I'd love to see this CD sell well enough to fund the development of a half-dozen critical Linux Audio projects for a year. So I've got my business hat on, not my artist hat on, at the moment.

If the laws of physics and economics could be suspended, then perhaps Brian Eno, Thom Yorke, Thomas Dolby, and David Byrne might make ideal judges. Back here on planet Earth, it might be more realistic to solicit the owners of small, established indie and internet labels as judges, or perhaps producers who have top-selling music on well-known, CC-friendly internet labels.

If you're interested in pursuing that, then I can think of three such acquaintances whom I could approach and ask to participate (I can call them and/or send you their contact info off-list).

That'd be helpful feedback.

Right now I'm trying to pull together a CD for submitting to Magnatune, and it's really hard to cull 7 hours of material down to 50 minutes. So I used the popularity statistics from PodPress on my own website as a coarse filter. I'm still not done (I'm at 1 hour 22 minutes... auugh!), but the statistics helped a lot.

That helps. For example, CC-SAMPLE material requires passing through the credit for the samples along with any republishing of the material. It's not always easy to figure out how to do that.
