If you won a category or individual award, please send me your address so we can get those sent out to you. Each contestant can only win 1 category and 1 individual prize, if multiple categories are won by the same contestant, he/she chooses which prize to receive and the other prizes will be awarded to the runner ups.

Once again I'd like to thank all of you for entering and making this such a great contest.

But it wouldn't have been possible without the help of Mark of Falworth, Brickfiend, Finn Tegotash, cmaddison, aardwolf_83, Sir Edwyn, Legopold, Jonas Wide, Sergeant Chipmunk, and jsnyder002. They all provided vital help with various aspects of the contest, whether that be donating prizes, judging entries, or coming up with ideas and categories.

Thank you all, and we'll see you at the Summer Joust next year!
