Through out the past year, between February and December 2011, our Jury members (s)eleted every month the short they felt was the best, our Winners of the Month. Shorts that were then automatically nominated for the Best Short of the Year category. All of the other 11 categories were open to every short that was screened as part of our competition during the year 2011.
