Masquerade 2014 Results?

I'm just wondering when the results for this years masquerade will be posted, and where. I'm really interested to see who won what, and the photos from the green room!

There usually up within the week after AN. Most of them have to be transcribed off of paper.

The awards ceremony was at 2pm this year on Sunday.

Often times the judges will feel that a costume is worthy of an award, but not one of the major awards. That is where these minor awards come in to play. They deserve recognition and should be rewarded for their hard work, so often they will make special awards and categories to honor them.

Yeah, that's the "Excellence deserves award" system. They'll have the usual best tailoring, prop, wig, best performance, etc., then they add more creatively-named awards for entries that didn't fall into a "main" award but were still deserving of something because they really stood out in some aspect. I've never competed at AN yet but I got "Most Regal" myself at last Con-G. Funny, I thought to myself when I was making it "If I win something, I BET it'll be either "Most royal" or for beading..." and I remember a few more back, a Piranha Plant entry got "Most voracious".

Apparently Youtube knows I'm a YnM fan with a link to The Flying Car [MAD] for my presentation. lol

Pretty much how you describe it, yeah. Other than "Best Novice/Journeyman/Artisan/Master/In Show" we don't have any set award names, so we tailor them to the entry, generally on what we found memorable. Sometimes we get stuck and just give it an "honorable mention" because it fits multiple categories or because there's already another entry with "best video game" or such. It's just us trying to liven things up with the award titles, that's all

Feedback as in feedback to the individual skits? If you mean that, we don't post up judging feedback, but you can always poke the judges and ask what we thought of the skit, and we can give general thoughts and pointers on it. We won't give out "why this won but not that" or the general judging opinion, but we'll be happy to do what we can for one-on-one feedback...

...just, if possible give us a video link or at least a photo/synopsis of the entry - we're only human and judges often take notes just so they can keep track of entries immediately after the show, let alone a few weeks later, so we may need a bit of a memory refresh, that's all

Hope that helps..

This was a mistake that happened during judging, the contestants were not supposed to be asked about feedback and if they wanted it, it is however possibly something that will happen in future years I believe? The Masq. directors will know more about that than I. I do know however that Skit Contest next year will possibly also provide feedback since a lot of people seem to be interested in hearing about that.

I believe the Construction only contest gave feedback, so my guess is that is where the confusion started.
