Sure, but you should add a comment telling the entrant that you gave the 
animation e.g. a bad technical score because of poor lip-syncing, and 
not because "it relied on a soundtrack"...

IHMO lip syncing and animating talking faces is an interesting and funny 
topic (and clearly belongs to "animation"). It's a bit hard to do 
without sound though... ;-)

How do you know the judges comments? After I entered my first
competition last year I could only see the public comments.

I checked with Bill Marrs (who runs the IRTC contest). He wasn't interested
in getting involved in this discussion, but quoted section 5.d of the
rules, noting that:

> I'm not sure how we would clarify that.

He also encouraged me to correct people who were misinterpreting the rules.
