I can agree with that, as my favorite movie is not the one that is rated the highest.
I see the value in the categories, as it can tell you where you need to improve, and I think that's what we're all trying to do here. But to me it seems the final rankings will be more a result of technical aptitude than anything else. I'm not saying this is good or bad. But a 'favorite' ranking would have been interesting as well I think to see how it played out. Is anyone else's favorite not the highest ranked one on their ballot?

You can bet some people actually think theirs is the top shinny and even if they dont you can bet they're giving themselves 10's anyways ....
shame shame shame
But, their one vote wont swing the standings.

BUT, then again, this is your baby. My wife and I have five kids. If one of my boys is being judged on something and I can vote on it, why wouldn't I vote for him above everybody else? "Sorry, son, but little Bobby over there was just plain out better than you." Yeah, right.
Do you think politicians don't vote for themselves? "Well, I hope I win the election, but I think my candidate here is the better man, so I voted for him." Um, I don't think so.
What probably should be in the rules for this contest is that any scores you make on your own film will be thrown out (i.e. don't vote for your own film). I think that can still be arranged, if the powers that be want it.
Ok. This might rub some people the wrong way, but if the opportunity is there, I'm giving my film 10's across the board. Not because I think I have the best film out there, but simply because it is MY film. And I personally feel that all of my blood, sweat and tears should at least be rewarded with a perfect score from my own heart and hand.

Look at it this way...how do you think your son would feel if he knew the only reason he won is because his father was on the panel judging? Do you think that would earn him the respect of his friends and peers?
Please note Cinealma I am not attacking you personally, just offering up another way of looking at this. You are 100% entitled to your own opinion on the subject, and I do not presume I can sway you.

I would install a filter the rejects the entire ballot of any participant that rated their film a 10 across the board (and would be suspicious of a 10 in any category as that implies perfection in that area and perfection is by my standard nearly unachievable).
