But in that case, wouldn't it make sense to abandon the three-categories
concept at all and let the judges simply submit a ranking list?
I have to admit, that's how I always do my ratings: By comparing two
entries I decide which one is better (which is not alwasy easy), and
thus I build a ranking list. But then I have to decide how to rate them
in each individual category (which is even harder), and once I finish
that I often find out that the new ranking list is almost top-down, or
at least that my favorit image/animation suddenly has only got an
average score and wouldn't even get a honorable mention. So I start
fine-tuning the individual scores to get as close as possible to my
original ranking list, while still trying to keep meaningful scores in
I'm lucky, the last three times I entered it was in animations, because
using this procedure for 50 or more stills entries would take weeks ;-)
