Just in time for Oscar night, we have your winners in the Feats of Wonder competition!
First off, let me congratulate all of the entrants in the competition — we had an excellent level of quality in the contest, 20 stories entered, and 43 participants all told (including those of you who didn’t enter, but joined nonetheless.)
As I had mentioned in the original blog post about the competition, the prizes are as follows:
- The top-ranked author in the contest will win a free Plus account for one year. If the winner already has an account, they’ll be upgraded/extended for a year, or they can donate the account to another author.
- The top 3 ranked authors will receive spiffy profile badges to commemorate their achievements.
Since there were no ties (and it was a very close top three!), the prizes will be doled out as I had originally anticipated. I’d also like to thank everyone who participated because they were, in effect, helping me to beta test the contest and story-submission system in groups. You know what that means… we should see full group functionality coming quite soon now (yes, I’m serious. :)
I plan on running more of these contests — using the same format — throughout the year. We’re already planning our next contest, and we’ve had a prize kindly donated by one of of our Plus members. More details to come in the next couple of weeks…
Congratulations to our winners, and keep your eyes peeled for the next contest! (And yes — I’m open to suggestions, so feel free to send them my way.)
