HMMMmmm...
I find it interesting that a video can win both it's category AND best in show... most contests I am familiar with, winning Best in show cancels out the category win and it goes to the category runner up...

also is there a list to be found of all the videos that actually competed.

I realized our rules this year didn't include that... so I decided against making it up at the last minute. The runner up in comedy had already won in action, and the next one after that in comedy had significantly fewer votes. These issues have been noted, more than likely there will be rule revisions for next year.

I might just post the ballot somewhere, and I'm working on updating the info on the a-m-v.org site.

The runner up in comedy already won in action???? how does that happen???? these videos are competing in multiple categories???? I'm confused. Do you divide the videos into categories before hand and take voting categorically or do you lump them all together and, decide what wins what by allowing people to pick what they think it's best for (category wise)?

Does this mean that there's gonna be a change in winners in different categories? If it is, I can't wait to see. As for the staff pick, I can't wait to see that too.

Seems to me there would be no change in the winners. The contest is over and the winners announced and, likely already notified.... I was just curious how they do there voting... since I didn't actually go to Tora-Con... ALSO I am curious what all videos were in the contest....

For winners, there should be news about prizes this coming week.

I'll try to address a couple of things right now...


The runner up in comedy already won in action????

By 'runner up' in that case I meant the submitter- the video that won comedy was submitted by the same person who was the runner up in action. This isn't an issue we've run into in the past, so once the AMV contest coordinator is determined for next year, I'll make sure that they review and revise the rules. If anyone has any specific suggestions, feel free to let me know and I can pass them on.

Edit: removed the previous link to the ballot, I've updated the first post of the thread to include the full video list also indicating winners. Incorporated some of the suggestions here, and didn't include editor names. On having the names in the ballot- that's just how we had done it before so I didn't change it. I'll pass that suggestion on for next year. I get to graduate for real this time!

There will be no staff pick video this year, as not enough of the staff had seen all of the videos to make a fair choice.

At the moment, only three of the winning videos are uploaded on a-m-v.org, and very few people has associated their contest submissions with our contest. I'll be sending something to everyone who submitted to remind them to do that.

Anyway- if you submitted, thank you! We'll be trying to make the experience next year a bit smoother, there were a few bumps this year.

As for voting and all of the contest entrants:
I've uploaded the ballot in PDF form from this years contest: http://www.fivefeetdeep.com/fileuploads/tora-con_amv_ballot_2009.pdf
That of course has all the videos which were in the contest, and demonstrates how the voting worked. Of course despite having a note about it before the actual contest in the video opener, and on the ballot, some ballots did come back with multiple votes per category, and those were not counted. I'll post the info for the videos in the contest here when I get a chance (also early next week... after my master's thesis defense...).

Romance Winner
Aliza Becker for the 5cm Per Second video to "Remembering You"


also of note I really don't like that my real name was used on the ballot instead of my studio name and handle... also I wish you had included the NAME of the VIDEO as well as the other info that way it becomes more plausible/easy to look videos up....
