Are you critical? Energetic? Witty?

If so, you may be the person we are looking for.

In January, buskers from around New Zealand and the world will come to Christchurch for 10 days of frivolity and fun during the SCIRT World Buskers Festival 2013.

Each year The Press sends critics to judge every performer and select winners for its coveted Critics' Choice prizes.

In 2013, for the first time, is holding a competition to find a companion judge to help Press critic Charlie Gates find a winner.

To be considered, tell us in 120 characters or fewer why you would make a good judge.

Those chosen as finalists will then have to submit a review of a hypothetical show and our readers will be able to vote on which review they consider the best.

The overall winner, announced on December 20, will become  a Critics' Choice judge, attend every act of the World Buskers Festival and help choose which performers will win the coveted prize of the Iron Chicken.
