I can't be happier for those who have been selected to go. What a dream! BUT, I can tell you that the judging criteria ABSOLUTELY was NOT followed in terms of the Rubrics that were SUPPOSED to be used by the judges to award points for the final determination of the 20 "best" videos - BASED ON THE RUBRICS. The Rubric was pretty specific in terms of how (out of 100 possible points) points would be earned by the video submissions based upon what was included in the video. It appears the judges decided to "throw out" the rubrics and just go for the ones that they liked the best.
But, again, I know how happy those selected feel to still be in the running for the ultimate prize. It's just too bad that the Space needle's judges didn't "follow the rules" (judging criteria) even when many people who submitted their videos did follow the "letter of the law" with the listed Rubrics. That simply means the world won't get to vote for many persons who submitted a video that should definitely have made the cut.
