Alright guys. The closed doors of our juror's quarters have finally opened. After some seriously combative deliberation we've sorted out what we can safely say are our three top ten lists. We got one for Animation, one for Art, and one for Music. We had to boil these down through a dozen spreadsheets, and it was not a pleasant experience to cut down the numbers. This year blew me away, and I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling this way. I mean, we had a counted total of 158 movies, 1,003 illustrations (estimated), and 108 songs. It can't be overstated that the quality seen across this vast number holds up, which made it all the more difficult for us to forge these lists.
There's blood in these lists. There's blood on our hands. There's blood everywhere. It was a massacre. From the bottom of my heart, whether you're here to watch, create, or just be a part of it all in your own way; thank you.
TOTAL PRIZE POOL 2495 DOLLARS. I have 30 messages to send out, which I will be doing tomorrow. If you're on this list I will be reaching out to you via Newgrounds DM. HUGE THANKS to our judging panel; absoluteDETH, Enite, Isolave, Cheshyre, Hans Van Harken, Stepford, and Miss Ebola. Could not have done this alone.
