Perhaps you can go both ways - use an applause meter and ballots.

Use the applause meter and announce instant winners at the contest.

Then count ballots and announce ballot winners at closing ceremonies.

Maybe even have separate ballots for the participating AMV creators present at the contest and allow them to judge the creative and technical merits of the entries.

True, you'd still have to wait until closing ceremonies to announce most of the winners. At least those who can only attend the contest would be somewhat appeased.

I always thought applause meters were the most flawed way of judging a contest, esspecially if someone hasn't put enough blackspace before/after their video, and the next one starts shortly after, not giving the audience enough time to cheer. Also, the videos that will get the most applause by nature, are comedy. Though my past experience, I've never seen/heard the crowd scream their lungs out and clap their hardest after a drama/sentimental video. Also, applause meters make it more of a contest for the people in the audience that scream the loudest.

Not to say I won't enter the contest because it's done this way. I always enter in the Sakura Con ^^ Being that it takes place less than an hour away from me.

Yeah, I'm working on two, and I know one of them won't be done by then. Which, sadly, is the one I wanted to get done for SC :cry:
