Judging Criteria

Our sharp-eyed judges will be looking closely at all the entries (once we spring them from their padded cells, of course). Here's what they'll be looking for:

1. At LEAST 3 shots/clips, edited together with some logic

2. At LEAST one Title

3. Some additional audio/music

Come on this is EDITING software, so do some EDITING try to tell a little story, visually!

Judging will be based on:

  • Creativity 30%
  • Editing and Effects 40%
  • Laugh-O-Meter rating 30%

Decision of the judges are final and any complaints will result in sense-of-humor-failure.
