Re: AWA 2016 The Video Art Track - Deadlines SEP 4 & SEP 13 [EXTENDED]

So on the votes first page there was a big reminder to respect the blinds, but was this supposed to be a completely blind year or "as blind as you give a shit to be?" Last year there were a bunch of "Welp, guess /I'm/ out of the running this year." or "I made #42-042 which ...

I hit the send button. Any further delays I blame Survey Monkey. :-P

Good luck everyone. Congratulations to those nominated.

Sorry, other things have intervened and I will have it out by midnight tonight.

Joe, you get a bonus for posting that video. j/k

I just sent reminders to everyone. Nomination participation is at less than 50% right now, going into the weekend. Vote early, vote often!

Re: AWA 2016 The Video Art Track - Deadlines SEP 4 & SEP 13 [EXTENDED]

Honestly, a lot of the issues related to trophy deadlines I think is self made on Jingoro's part. You push the deadline back, make each segment of judging shorter, and all in the name of giving us more time to make our entries. Yet in the end most of us still wait to the last min to finish and subm...

Of all the things about this contest I hope never change, it's y'all. Thank you for sticking with me all these years.

(much description trimmed for brevity) This is VERY similar to how Expo works... I'll think about it, but I think Pro would lose a lot of its uniqueness under a "these N videos are worthy, now brand them" scheme.

Re: AWA 2016 The Video Art Track - Deadlines SEP 4 & SEP 13 [EXTENDED]

Category nomination is efficient to allow for the creation and weeding of new categories but I do not believe, in its current format, it allows for a thoughtful analysis of if a staple category should be included at all this year. Then it is broken, does not serve its purpose, and I am more convinc...

Re: AWA 2016 The Video Art Track - Deadlines SEP 4 & SEP 13 [EXTENDED]

The trouble with voiding a category after category selection is that I actually order trophies immediately after category selection closes. There's a 3-4 week lead time to get trophies (especially the nice new glass ones) so I don't have a choice in this matter unless I make sure ALL voting that cou...

Re: AWA 2016 The Video Art Track - Deadlines SEP 4 & SEP 13 [EXTENDED]

Assume I need to pre-order trophies well in advance... what do y'all think of "flex" trophies not mentioning the award they are for? I order "Best Video", "Best Drama", etc... AND I order 2 or 3 extra trophies without any mention of what they're for. Another option is t...

Re: AWA 2016 The Video Art Track - Deadlines SEP 4 & SEP 13 [EXTENDED]

while I'm not a fan of the top 10 type of system, I do kinda like the swapping back and forth between pro and expo winners cause half the crowd leaving after one contest ends and the other starts is frustrating. I'm a little afraid it might look like some kind of competition between the two contest...

Re: AWA 2016 The Video Art Track - Deadlines SEP 4 & SEP 13 [EXTENDED]

I'd sooner see us throw out a comedy award in that case, which is why it's so important for people to pay attention to phase 1 of voting. I mean it's pretty much the option of giving everyone who tried a participation award, awarding Earnest Fellates Himself to Death (literally 90 minutes off the s...

That was my original proposal, and I continue to favor it based on the discussion so far.

Might avoid half the room leaving after the first event... it's something to consider.
