Aaaand the results are here! [Edit: Add queue -dokidoki]

Shameless copypasta from the last year (and the year before too)!

So, thanks to our seven judges, we finally have the results. We may get some playlist over time, but for now let's just sum it up.
The judges were:

Nya-chan Production
CodeZTM
Radical_Yue
TritioAFB
MimS
S.A. Robert
and StarTrinity009
(+ guest appearance of Shin-AMV)

The judges couldn't vote in the category they had a video in/they were nominated in.

Want just the rating sheets and skip the unnecessary talk?
HERE!
(The results are on sheet 1, on sheet 2 are the individual scores from judges~)

Following are the results in this format:

Name of category (max. number of points a video could have gotten).
Winning vid (points gotten) - marked with an asterisk if Shin-AMV decided it on a tie. Ties on other places than 1st haven't been decided.
Videos on the second and third place, respectively, with points on it.

This year there were no extra awards (except for mine, as I wrote them down NOW, ah, the advantages of the coordinator!) and text ratings due to time pressure. You can always ask the judges if they're fine with it though - I always am ;>
Well, there was one new award added, which will be awarded from now on every year. I'll explain when I get to it ^^

Lifetime Achievement
godix
The judges pick on name from the final pool of the names for this one. If any name gets over half of the votes, it is awarded Lifetime Achievement. If no-one gets over half of the votes, the award isn't awarded for that year. This award is definitive and cannot be awarded multiple times over years to a single person.

Special Awards

Coordinator's "screw PencilHead, I loved this!" pick - l33tmeatweed - Requiem of the Endless Eight
The "Shivering of the Year" Award - Shin-AMV - Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magika

If you find any mistakes in naming, links or spreadsheets, please write so, so I can fix it.

It was fun - see you in a year o/

Btw, this format is not sustainable, so I'll probably be switching to php with a database next year. Some work for me once and then lots of laziness and fun for me and judges <3
And lots of double winners in JCAs/VCAs this year. Would be interesting to see more picks, maybe, but years like this happen too, I guess~

While I didn't do my massive text wall on a word document like I did last year, I have my paper notes and would be more than willing to share my scoring positions.

Best Horror [again] and close third place for best VFX? I'll take it.

If judges are willing to share I'd love to hear some feedback btw.

You're more than welcome to~
If any of judges have their notes in digital form and want to share I'll be more than happy to convert it to Google Docs, edit the post and include a link ^^

I'll try to get some notes down at least about first places or about top three/four ones (we'll see how much time I'll get).

Cool results :) Thanks to all the judges who put the time and effort in to get this done. Its very much appreciated.

My notes for the tiebreaker in drama:
Jus Talionis: Loli Raep.
Dare to Love Again: Needs more loli raep.
Jus Talionis wins.

More seriously though I just found Jus Talionis to have very solid storytelling with provactive, controversial, and compelling imagery.

Not much surprise here and a much better spread than the VCAs provided this year. I will say ONE category surprised me though...comedy. Gay Means Happy? REALLY? Both the 2nd and 3rd place videos were MUCH funnier AND better made, don't really understand the logic behind the choice on that one...not that the winning video wasn't good.

I'm so happy this is OVERRR!!! This was my first time judging anything, and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed the honor.
Also, if anyone cares to know, my judge's choice would have been Gemini Rose. It was highly captivating.
Congratulations everyone! :D

So it's over. I'm surprised the rest of judges chose videos I previously mentioned in the nomination phase. Honestly I didn't expect seeing some Action and Drama videos there.

Comments:

What I like of this edition of the JCAs was that it got a variety between the selections.
Action category had several entries I just couldn't ignore. Wished I could select them all :o
Surprised to realize Drama had a tie, I thought the category was decided with a fabolous story like Just Talionis, that I honestly said in its time I didn't like it, however I didn't ignore several aspects behind the winner: A storyline that was quitely different to the rest of entries, not to forget the mood. Jus Talionis represents the perfect example of Drama.
While in the VCAs we had problems about the definition of who is considered a rookie, in this edition of the JCAs, seems we didn't have that problem considering the winners. Props to the rest of judges

Fun times :3

My judges choice would have to go to Artistic Anarchy by Echotrooper. Easily one of my favorite videos of the year :D
