VCA Contest Results  
The VCA contest wrapped up last week. If you've got an account you can see the results here. As expected, two well done videos that i personally did not appreciate from an artistic viewpoint managed to sweep up 7 awards between them. but a couple of videos i liked managed to sneak through. So how good a job did i do at influencing the outcome?

Video of the Year

I think it's worth reiterating, especially in this context, that just because a video wasn't my favourtie doesn't mean it was bad. The two the cleaned up at the awards were _very_ well done, i was just personally annoyed by some of the themes and source material.

But in any case, the videos i really liked went on to the finalist round in 53/120 cases, or about 44%. The videos i _voted_ for went on to the finalist round in 44/120 cases, or about 37%. The reason for the disparity is that in many categories there were more videos that i liked than slots i could nominate for. So in many cases what would have been my #6 choice or #7 choice or etc made it in.

As far as actually winning goes, videos that i really liked made it in 9/24 cases, or about 37%, and the ones i voted for won in 4/24 cases, or about 17%.

But wait! There's more! There were also the editor categories!

Rookie of the Year

So for some reason i rocked in the editor section! I voted for 10 of the 20 nominees and 3 of the 4 winners! So 50% and 75% success rate!

Interestingly, if you eliminate the categories in which the two stellar videos won, then my "favorites got nominated" rate stays steady at about 45%, while the "voted for nominees" rate actually _drops_ to 32%. However as expected the "one of my favorites won" and "voted for the winner" values skyrocket to 53% and 23% respectively. But obviously if i had the magical power to dictate the categories and/or results then very quickly my success rate would shoot to 100% :)
