Euphoria won at 3 contests (listed on the vid page) - and has near 400 reviews - you can bet a lot are because it's already at the top of the list, but many were definitely drawn in *because* it was shown at a con.
By contrast, Tainted Donuts lists one con and has 266 reviews - again, many because it is so high on the list, but you can bet a lot came from the vid being shown in public.
In that case, you might as well say the good vids that show at cons where many can see them will get the reviews they deserve. And any who don't submit to cons, or aren't well-known for having won at cons, obviously aren't worth it anyway, so no great loss there.

You can have the best edited/looking vid in the world, but if no one wants to watch it, the vid shouldn't be on that list. The 'reviewable' is the main 'opinion' area of the scores, so it being counted highest goes along with the idea of a popularity contest rather than just judging the 'perfection' of the editing. It's like voting for prom queen, not ranking the SAT scores...]
