First, I must apologize for the lateness of this information. Part of this is my own fault for being so bloody busy during the March and April months. I have been holding onto this information long enough now, so I think it's about time you all know!

The Runners Up for the 4th Annual Young Writers Award are:
  • MonaLon
  • Derezzination
  • bookworm
  • Tredyakovsky

And the winner of this year's award is...

Oh my god, what is that bottom gif from? It's beauteous.

I'm not sure how other people handled the judging, but I looked at the whole portfolio for each entrant and based my ranking on the sum of all the works submitted by each person -- all the pieces were given a number to indicate which were by the same author. So ALL your pieces won!
