I would likely give a 7 or 8 on appearance.... Can't really tell what the ends are like... but they seem to be a little soupy with the sauce. Can't tell if the on side is ragged, or just has a funky shadow from the pic. If it is ragged it would be a 7, if it is clean, an 8.
And while I can appreciate the comments from folks.... the worst stuff I cook, that I wouldnt feed my dog I have had people complement me on. I'm sure yours was great, but as saucy as it was you might have been marked down for over saucing, or for something in your flavor profile the judges there didnt like? Not sure - I wish I could help, I'd love a taste to see what the product was like!
