AWA Contest Results (official)

Postby MCWagner » Tue Sep 26, 2006 5:06 pm

Brakus beat me to the first announcement, but for once I've got all the staff and guest awards together with the other contest awards.

Please let me know about any errors that have crept into the details of these awards. There's a chance I cut & pasted something wrong or have someone's name misspelled, especially in the guest awards section, since I'm working off of incomplete lists.

It should be noted that my VAT award was specifically for Barranti, not an award given from myself to myself. Of course, that would also be funny. At least I think it would be funny.

MCWagner, is there any chance that you'll release a complete listing of all the Expo entries? I'm curious as to whether my entries actually went though (might've forgotten to upload that txt file). :P

Due to technical difficulties (VAT and tech difficulties, who'd a thunk it) I was not able to post the list prior to the con. I should hopefully have the lists up in the near future for the ravening hordes of "Oooooh, I saw this video with (vague and probably wrong anime source) done to (equally vague and incorrect song)" requests going on the AWA boards.

For what it's worth, besides your Pro and SAS videos, there were 3 Expo videos we watched for judging. No clue how many got played during the con, but I understand we made and exceeded our "one per person" criteria despite Brian's Song monopolizing nearly an hour of screen time by itself =/

Thanks for the quick reply, and thanks also for sticking to the "at least one per person" criteria. I'm sure all of the entrants would appreciate that.

Congrats to all the winners, and thanks again to Bakadeshi, VegettoEX, and Wayne Hamilton for the guest awards.

Well, I must say that participating in the AWA contests this year has reawakened my desire to edit, somewhat. We'll see what happens in 2007. :)

Well, it translates to something a bit obscene, so perhaps it's best left in Afrikaans. :P

Anyhow, congrats to all the winners this year. As always, AWA puts on one heck of a contest, and I'll definitely be looking forward to next year. :up:

What the duece? How much beyond 4:00 did the guest awards go? I had to leave to catch the four o clock shuttle to the airport and low and behold I actually get something for a video I made so I could finally strike back against Kiba's monotonous dialogue. O_o

BTW Matt. Will there be an upload of the whole SAST project later?

We went to about 4:20.

As for the SAST, I'm uncertain right now, but will start looking into it.
