We've done something a bit like this, with a small amount of European funding
from ELSNET.

These 'MAD Demos' are aimed at a lower-level audience than you propose, and some
don't concern audition at all, but there is good overlap, and the presentation
style is worth looking at. You can download from Martin Cooke's home page:


The way reviewing worked was that as part of the funding proposal we undertook
to arrange peer reviews, to be fed back to authors resulting in modifications.
We weren't the only group involved & there is other software, collected for the
'Education Arena' at EUROSPEECH 99. There's a CD of that, & I'm trying to find
out if we have a mirror site.
