Voting in uniquely specified challenges

I couldn't think of a good term for the challenges that encourage entries based upon personal interpretation of songs or books.

While most entries seem to be based upon some knowledge of the subject I feel that the voting is not.

I never vote in a challenge that I have entered but if I am to vote on entries interpreting a book or song I feel I should at least read a precis of the book or listen to the song on Itunes (The first can be done in Wickopedia and the second by using Apple's free sample system). I believe many voters fall back to judging photographic qulality with little concern for the appropriateness of interpretation.

These are some of the most fascinating challenges but I'm not sure the "pats on the head" go to the right people.
