No question.

Even if I might disagree with some of the results, I disagree a hell of a lot less.

Damn straight. Grats to the winnners!

Congrats to all the winners! It's an interesting to see these results!

Now for some comments:

- Did the judges watched through all the semi-final videos? Cause that's a whole lot!
- The only thing we need is a side-by-side comparison with the VCA - who's willing to do that? :D (as far as I can see, but correct me if I'm wrong, almost all of the vids here were in the VCA's finals)
- Thanks to Koop for setting this up (and sacrificing his VCA/JCA-awards in order for the experiment to work) and the judges to make this possible!

Cool, the results are pretty much aligned with my own votes. :D

Congrats to the winners and thanks for running this, Kewp!

In what shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, I was one of the judges. I was the one who commented on (almost) everything. Figured I'm watching the damn things anyway, no reason I shouldn't type up a sentance or two for it.

A fair amount of the videos were in multiple categories so it wasn't that bad.

I'm not one for thanking people and crap, but I am glad Koop decided to do this. I think the results provide an interesting counterpoint to the VCA results.

awsm results for this contest! i think i like the results on this more than the VCA's maybe cause it closer resembles my votes. either way i think this is more of videos judged for themselves rather than videos judged for who made them (not saying the VCA's are entirely like that but it is an element imo)
either way huge :up: to koop for organising this

Congrats to the winners!

I also echo the sentiments about the JCA results reflecting my own VCA choices more closely than the VCA results.

Thanks to Koop and the judges that participated for making this happen.

Cool... I liked the results here... I liked the results in the VCAs too...

This is because the videos which I thought were going to win in both competitions were fairly close to the actual winners. It's a good mix of what could be seen as wildly popularised and as what would be more "critically acclaimed".

Good job kewp... this has been interesting.

x4 or something

Clearly more reflective if good videos than the VCAs. Not the best, but certainly a lot more agreeable to look at.
