Voting and Judging Answered

im kind of new to the contest scene, but how significant is voting in comparison to judging? or vice-versa? What decides the winners, and is there anything i should know about either? thanks

Top 10 most voted will be the finanists, along with another 10 tht is picks by the staff. Then from the 20 finalists, the judges will pick 12 winners.

I would say to just do your best. Any of us who would even enter a contest would like to win it. Being too concerned with the winner selection process may show in your work and that would probably detract from your effort. Make your project the best it can be, do it with heartfelt passion and you'll be a winner whether you get the brass ring or not.

The judges decide the winners, form a shortlist created by the voting process I believe.
Theory: it it gets enough votes it's in the running for a prize. The judging picks the best of these (weeding-out erroneous / manipulated voting).
