One final reminder for everyone! If you haven't sent your entry in, I would definitely suggest heading to the post office tomorrow...!

For those of you whose entries we have received in the last few days (and that's quite a few of you), expect the entry confirmations in the relative near future. If you're sending an entry, drop me a line to let me know to be on the lookout for it (if you wish to remain anonymous from the general public, feel free to PM me).

Yooooosh~. Here we go with the full information on the contest.

The contest was played three times throughout the entire convention (Friday @ 12 noon in Main Events, Saturday @ 9 am in Main Events, Sunday @ 9 am in Main Events). Ballots were due Saturday by 4:00 pm. We had a total of twenty-seven videos in the contest. The videos were separated into four categories: Trailer/Parody, Action, Drama, and Comedy (three, seven, thirteen, and four videos, respectively). At the end of the contest, a recap was played, which was basically a slide-show collection of all of the title cards and a uniquely identifying screen shot from the video, one after another. Each attendee could pick their single favorite video in each of the four categories; this would decide the four popular vote winners. After the ballots were counted, the judges (myself and Meri) selected one other video that we felt set itself apart from the other videos in some kind of way (with both technical and artistic merits).

All five winning videos were played during the awards ceremony to a packed main events room, which took place Saturday evening during the judges' deliberation for the cosplay awards.

So here's the full list of videos! Links to their respective entries on "the org" are provided where available.

Big props to all the tech and general convention crew that helped out during all of the showings. Thanks, everyone, and we'll see you all again next year! *collapses*
