Each year has been worse than the last, I'm just glad that there was a better set of videos (a good chunk of them were from editors I knew that I suggested sending videos in), however there were videos they lost and even worse, videos they didn't download at all due to their automated system not sending it to their email (confirmed this with the staff). Not assuming I would have won, but it is rather annoying that my chance to win comedy for a third year in a row wasnt even a possibility because they never even downloaded my video at all. I can't say it the worst contest I've participated in before, but that is only because they actually announce the winners, however everything else about the contest the last three years has ranked it amoung the lowest of contests I have participated in. I really hope someone takes the initiative to take over the contest because I would love to see it run more effectively, it would take little effort to improve it from the current level it is at.
That said, I'll post the winners tonight when I get home (if someone else doesn't beat me to it). It was also disappointing as to what little care was taken with the announcement at closing ceremonies.
Aw, that's a shame to hear.
Sorry to hear that meatwad. The fact that there were videos lost because of the automated system glitch is nothing short of a disaster.
It was my first year submitting to Animazement. I thought the process was a lot different than what I'm used to. If people's videos are getting lost or not received often I sincerely hope there is effort made to improve that process for next year.
How large were the showing rooms this year and was there a big crowd? I wish I had the opportunity to attend more cons.
