Of the 77 entries received, 69 received scores. Two entries were named Honorable Mentions for being deemed unscorable by the judges while falling within the parameters of the contest. Six levels were disqualified.[2]

In addition to official scores, judges collaborated on the selection of Judges' Choice recipients based on categories not formally recognized by the scoring rubric (level design, creativity, aesthetics).[3] These Judges' Choice awards are chosen by judge consensus and are not intended to imply a high score or placement, but rather celebrate achievement by a creator in specific areas.
