Interesting, I always have high hopes about certain videos, but they never classify. Until I just enter them without thinking about winning, they always get in finals :O

Congrats to the finalists

Ohh, I made it *happy* Is there any way to know which of my videos is shown at the con? I entered two that could both fit in the sentimental category. (Though I'm guessing it's the Beauty and the Poet, hehe...)

This might appear a strange question, but were there videos that were very good but weren't added to the finalists because they didn't fit into any category? Just asking because of an entry of a friend of mine :oops:

Congratulations to the finalists ^^ Wished I could go!

I'm guessing this year's contest is more competitive than last year's, for whatever reason. One of my videos didn't make it either. :amv:

That's the one.

I'm glad somebody asked about this. :) Ours is an unusual approach that I don't know if any other contests use. It's an idea we'd had kicking around for a while, and talking about it last AWA to people with experience running contests helped to give us the confidence to implement it.

We did things differently this year. As explained in rule #12 ("Categories"), the prescreening judges rated the videos without regard to categorization. Videos in sparser genres didn't get any advantage, and videos in more crowded genres were at no disadvantage. Finalists were decided on the judges' scores alone. So if a video was rated well enough to be in the top hour-and-50-minutes (and not DQed), it made finals, period.

Only after the finalists were selected did we pick the seven categories, and I'm glad to report that we were able to place every video in one of the categories its creator indicated on his/her entry form. This is also why, unlike prior years, there's an imbalance in the sizes of each category: for example, we had a *lot* of actiony videos in the field of finalists.
