We decided to only score and rank the top 20 entries. While we commend the efforts of the other 47 entrants, and did review all the entries to select the top 20 for scoring purposes, we felt it would be better to score the top 20 only, as some of the less experienced entrants might take "67th place, with zero points" the wrong way. This isn't to say that there were worthless entries, they all had something good about them, but any kind of ranked scoring system is going to leave some people out and we wanted to avoid that as much as possible. Also, due to the delays, we wanted to get results out quickly. After all, only the top three will receive prizes.
Also, from the ceremony:
The judging system for THAC this year is a little different from previous years. While technical ability is an important part of creating a good film, we felt that the overall enjoyment experience wasn't really reflected in the results - the best film didn't necessarily win if it wasn't quite up to the same technical level as another film.
For THAC 6 we ranked the films in 3 categories: Story (The originality, conceptual execution, and enjoyability of the film), Theme (how creatively the theme "New" was incorporated), and Presentation (the production values, incorporating animation, cinematography, sound.)
Presentation was half of the total score (in the past the combined Presentation-based categories were 3/4 of the score), with story being 2/3 and theme accounting for the remaining 1/3.
Regarding the prizes, Stevie has yet to contact Will Chapman to explain what's happening. I'll update the winners. Speaking of Chapman, I'd like to thank him for generously offering us those prizes, Also, while I'm at it, I better thank Stevie for doing an awesome job on organizing this contest, Sméagol for judging and providing endless help, Leonardo812 and ManVan also for kindy volunteering to judge... Thank you all!
