I'm extremely interested in this Judge's award...I've never heard of a vid winning an award without being in the contest itself. Will whichever this vid is be shown at the con still?
The vid was submitted to Seishun-Con, and was the only one in its category that received a perfect score from every judge. But after much discussion, we (the judges) decided that the video was not submitted to its ideal category. We didn't necessary feel that it was submitted to a bad category, but we felt that the other videos in the category were a much better fit than it, and represented the concept of that category better. All of us felt that the AMV was our favorite submission, so giving it the Judges award was the obvious solution.
Oh and yes, the vid will be shown during the contest.
And lastly, the twitter account that I will be using to announce the winners is http://twitter.com/#!/kireblue
