    Oh my gosh! I must say this totally blew me away since I wasn't listed as a finalist. Thank you so much!! ♥ ♥ ;__;
    Having a storytelling award in the contest was what made me want to participate at Zenkaikon in the first place so just.... Wow.
    Also I noticed you had listed the winners in the description of the Youtube video. My video is online and can be found here:

    I'm sorry, can I just check with you:
    Kira wasn't listed as a finalist, but she won Best Storytelling... even though she wasn't in the finals?

    I realize this may come off as a salty message, I assure you it's not, I'm just trying to clarify the system for her sake. :D So, did the award come from the judges or..?

    It's a judges award.
    We only have 30 finalist slots to fill; only five per category and we had 84 total entries.
    Romance / Sentimental is a consistently competitive category and there is usually a tight race for the fifth slot (according to our scoring system).
    Sometimes, even though an entry doesn't score into the finals, it might tell a better story.
    There will be times when, even though the numbers don't favor an entry, it just "feels" better to the judges (if that makes any sense).
    Anyway, there are times when an entry outside of the finalists will win something from the judges.
    I hope this explains it well enough..?
