Tired, hungry, and hungover. Sorry if this is brief. I've got a van full of A/V gear to unload before tomorrow.
Categorical awards were determined by the judges, who ranked each category's videos from worst to best, and those rankings were averaged with the two lowest scoring vids as the winners. Audience choice was determined by the audience voting for their 3 favorites (not weighted) and all votes were tallied (over 200 returned ballots. Not bad for us not handing out pencils!). The top 3 highest scoring videos were awarded audience choice awards. Best of show was determined by the judges unanimously voting for the video that they were most likely to be watching 5 years from now.
I'm typing this list from memory. If there is a misprint, I will correct it tomorrow when I get my main computer going again.
