The time has come! ALL THE WINNERS!!!! Yaaaay!

FYI: The winners of the auction were chosen based on highest bid placed BEFORE midnight on Friday the 14th. This was a tough/heartbreaking call to make, but this way seemed the most accurate/official. Like, if a store says they close at 9:00, they lock the doors at 9:00 not 9:01. I hope that makes sense.

And the winners of the giveaway were selected using If you are international and won a mail prize, please let me know, so we can make different arrangements.

Winners of the Contest! (going on to agent round):

To get this posted asap, I decided to simply announce entry post #s. Click on the post #s in the right sidebar to see more! PLEASE REMEMBER how subjective these choices are. All of the judges said this was impossibly hard and there were some great entries. I guarantee if we had 10 different judges, we'd have 40 different selected entries. (Note: One judge only selected 3 winners, so there are 39 entries.)


Winners of contest, please email me with UPDATED entries by midnight tonight!!! Formatted the same! (

Congrats and THANK YOU to everyone!!!
