XD But next year I'll have to go at it at the Master's Level. Oh, and is there anything I have to do to get prizes shipped to me, or does the convention staff handle it?
Your video won because the anime was completely unrecognizable. Most of the judges didn't even know it was Fruits Baskets until the very end. Your brilliant editing of using only the "dark" scenes from the show totally blew everyone away.
Unfortunately, swag prizes are only offered at the Awards Ceremony if you are able to attend, but your trophy will be shipped to you.

The "Honorable Mentions" are something we are trying to return to in making these events more personal and fan-oriented.
Your video was a fun piece and all those scenes of Inspector Zenigata swinging his handcuffs at Lupin got someone thinking about "bondage".

Are you sure there aren't specific winners for the separate categories like action, drama, and comedy?
A-Kon doesn't do category winners any more. Not for several years. Most other conventions already do that, why should we? We're different!

The master list will be posted on the VSE website soon.
