The fact is, animated entries in the handdrawn contest distract from the doll. Say someone enters an animated entry that is crap, but the person judging still awards it first place cuz it's all sparkly!1!eleventy! How is that fair to the entrant who's slaved over their entry, yet is unable to animate? Answer; it's not. So in order to make it fair and square for everyone, animation was scrapped. How would you feel if, say, I started a contest that was exclusive to premis? That wouldn't be very fair either. Or if I said, "No-one under the age of eighteen can enter this contest". Why should people who can't animate, either cuz they don't have the skills or the necessary programmes, be penalised?
