Home and Updates


These are  the categories that may be awarded during the normal Rounds. If the judges do not feel there are sufficient entries to the standard we expect in a category then we will not make an award that round.   Runner up awards may also be given from time to time and where the placing is very close there may also be Honorable Mentions.   Judges also reserve the right to create new categories as we see fit.  All entries that make it through the first phase of judging are  considered for the  Best Video &  Best Editing  awards. .Judge's Choice will be made from all entries and reflect the judge's personal preference. We will no longer give out Fandom based awards except during our Best Of rounds. or maybe Special Rounds.
