What are the criteria for judging?
For the Open Round, judges select their top 20 entries while keeping in mind elements of Art, Animation, Originality, Entertainment, and Structure. Entries on their lists are scored like so:
#1 on the list = 20 points
#2 on the list = 19 points
#3 on the list = 18 points
... and so on. This makes for 100 possible points, but divided much differently than later rounds.
We have an update from Bennett Awards! John, the designer of the NATA trophy, is actually a long-time NewGrounds fan, and donated to the IndieGoGo campaign -- he just received his shirt and sent in a photo! (Below) They have also informed me that the trophy will be complete in a week or so, and we'll have photos to show you all by then.
