In February, preliminary judges at the APSE Winter Conference in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., and off-site around the country, selected a top five, with each judge ranking the entries in order from 1 to 5 separately on a secret ballot. Entries were given five points for a first-place vote down to one point for a fifth-place vote. The final five were given to a second judging group, which ranked the entries 1-5 in the same fashion. The winner and final rankings are determined by tallying the ballots.
The Short Video category is for videos up to 2 minutes, with entries judged, foremost, on the strength of storytelling. Visual and auditory quality are also considered.
The top 10 is listed below, with links to writers’ Twitter pages, APSE member websites and winning entries.
