(email firstname.lastname@example.org OR list them on a notecard to Jayjay Zifanwe - please put your name on the title of the notecard with the words MachinimUWA VIII Audience Event).
The 5 participants whose order comes closest to the final order decided by the judging panel, will win for themselves between L$12,000 - L$5,000.
