The final ranking of the video had been also influenced by the combination of both public and jury voting (50:50).
Since Adblock Plus is a community-driven project, we believe that everyone should be able to contribute to the success of their favourite submitted video. That’s why half of the rankings were defined by our loyal community, as well as by many short film lovers from all over the world.
