That's correct, and I'm pretty sure AnimeNEXT's contest never offered such an award under ReligionX or MeriC/VegettoEX either.

that is so interesting... would you care to explain why it's not offered? I'm not offended or anything, it's just unusual and I'd love to hear the reasoning. :o

I can't speak for the previous coordinators; but as for myself, if you have audience-voted category awards and an audience-voted Best In Show as well, it just seems redundant. I say that because, in all my years of paying attention to these contests, I have only ever heard of one contest having such a setup where the Best In Show winner was not a comedy (unfortunately I don't remember which one, but I'm pretty sure the winning video in that case was a drama).


On a different note, I'd be remiss not to mention how good the Masquerade audience was for the showing of the winners: there wasn't a video they didn't go crazy over. I actually remarked to the former A/V Tech head who was next to me, "They don't usually cheer like that for a drama winner."

*nod nod* it's true that a best in show winner is usually the winner of its category which can seem rather redundant, however i refuse to give the category winner over to the second place winner.

AX determines the best in show more strategically. it all has to do with percentages - votes by judges, audience and creators.

It's not the whole winning-two-awards thing that I meant; I was speaking specifically about the comedy winner almost always getting it.

That's why I restricted my statement specifically to completely audience-voted contests. :P Unfortunately we don't get enough creators attending the con to make something like that viable...

Comedy definitely has an advantage... but it still depends on the audience.

AX for example:
Spoiler :
Recent Best of Shows
2013 - Trailer/Parody
2012 - Action
2011 - AmTV Pro
2010 - Comedy
2009 - Drama
2008 - Comedy
2007 - AmTV
it can be done!

There must be an image macro somewhere that would fit this: Run AMV contest for local New Jersey con -- end up mailing 6 out of 7 prizes to the West Coast. :P

Prizes have been sent! In addition to the DVD/Blu-ray prizes from our corporate sponsors, each winner also receives a certificate (in holder) signed by both contest coordinators and the convention chair, plus one of our customized medals (see photo on page 1 of this thread), with a checkered-flag ribbon to fit this year's Racing theme.
All packages should arrive by Friday. If you care, PM me for your tracking number.
