All the categories look pretty intense, especially that upbeat category... 7 people enter 1 person leaves on life support. Brutal.
So, about that. We already obtained the trophy and prize support for the theme category even though it only had 3 entries - it seemed a bit silly to just discard them, so the category stayed and we took the highest rated videos in the prescreening that did not make the top 5 in each category and used them to pad the contest out to the standard 30 videos total. It just so happened that the top scorers were both in upbeat/fun/etc.
Looking back on my numbers, it seems that 5 of the top 6 scorers (after taking the initial round of finalists out) were all in Upbeat/Fun/Etc. It was a very strong category.
