How many webcomics should qualify for the final voting round by the jury?

The more comics qualify the more important is the opinion of the jury. If there are too many comics in the final round (e. g. 10) that does not only mean more work for the jury who has to look at every comic, but also the nomination itself would not be worth much. But the jury should still be able to select among a few.

My personal opinion is 5 (4 would be okay, too).

There should be a top three for the jury to vote on; four at most. This seems standard for award ceremonies and with good reason: it reduces workload and makes the awards mean something.

I would suggest 5 at most.

I would also say five personally.

Four or Five sounds good to me.

Perhaps if there is a tie for the final slot someone (i.e. a nominated person for each award, or maybe Wendy as the awards' overall Chairwoman) has a deciding vote.

I agree with Zoe, I like three, but I don't hate the idea of five. Five at most, I guess.

I feel three is too few, though I can't quite qualify why. It just feels too few. I must admit I envisioned somewhat more - say 7 - but you're right, too many would put too much pressure on the judges and make the voting round less important. Five sounds good, though.

Bump bump bump.

The thread went invisible so I'm bumping it back to life.

I have nothing different to say on the matter, however I'd prefer 4 to 5 as opposed to 3 (nothing over 5 though).

I would say 4, 5 if one comic is simply good enough to warrant the addition. Should shoot for four or less though.
