That's what one person believes Andy Smetanka's "erotic photoplay" should win after it screened in Seattle as part of HUMP!, an amateur porn film festival hosted by The Stranger.

We wrote a couple weeks ago about Smetanka's latest short film, which uses the time consuming process of Super 8 silhouette animation. After the story ran, we heard two recurring questions: "Is Sheepless in Montana for real?" (yes), and "What is this HUMP! thing all about?"

The latter can be answered with a weekend blog post from The Stranger's Dan Savage, titled "This Is What Democracy Looks Like. Well, This Is What Democracy Looks Like at a Porn Festival." The alt weekly hosts the annual event, and this year's ballot boxes for best of festival winners depicted ... well, we'll let you check it out. But, more importantly, one attendee, shown in the comment section of Savage's post as No. 11, thought Smetanka's "The Miller's Daughter" should be honored in a new category.

Actual awards for Best Kink ($1,000), Best Sex ($1,000), Best Humor ($1,000), and Best In Show ($4,000) have yet to be announced.
