And The Winners Are...
|Another difficult time in the world of our 16 Challenge judges. Stories switched for first and second places back and forth, vote for vote. And after all the nominations were tallied, a tie was broken at the VERY end! Plus a valid Honorable Mention. The last few judges clinched it.|
All nine stories in the Potter’s Affairs Challenge are great. Each author went in varied directions with the requirements. The Adulthood and Galleons Well Spent categoryies didn’t fair as well as Best Overall and Drama, but were just as interesting. The hero got the girl, got the gold, and got some peace with the Slytherins. I thought I saw them shopping for wallpaper last week.
And now the results…
The award for Best Overall goes to:
”Speculations: What Every Wizard Wants” by Spenser Hemmingway
The award for Drama goes to:
”All the Toys of the World” by the mystery tramp
The award for Adulthood goes to:
”Harry Potter and the Affairs of State” by Nuvisionary
The award for Galleons Wisely Spent goes to:
”When Life Gives You lemons…” by MinistryMalcontent
Honorable Mention is given to one story that had a very high number of votes but not in any one category to win:
”Foundations” by Rogan
The winning stories are now prominently listed in our Featured Stories section. Those of you that have multiple chapters or need to do some editing may continue at this time. The Challenge category is back open. If your story is completed, please ensure it is edited and YES, as completed.
The 2008-5 Challenge is coming very soon. You will need all your wit and wisdom.
I would like to thank my many judges who worked hard for this Challenge: AS, BP, CM, CP, CQ, DW, GC, IV, JML, KC, LN, MH, NSL, SH, Tc, and YC. You know who you are. Thank you very much for all that reading and judging. That one last nomination at 5 PM broke a tie.
Some authors have asked if I would tell them how well they did in the judging. If you wish, e-mail me and I will tell you your results.
PS: school, home, job, financial, affairs, and you need to start making your future plans now.
