    2008 Tribute Gift Art to Team Dragon and Team Phoenix  
    We received this beautiful piece in the early part of the Art Games, from the lovely [info]sealcat.

    We didn't think it truly belonged with the Crack Art, so we held on to it for a year end tribute to the Teams of 2008.

    Unfortunately, [info]sealcat was unable to compete in this Games this year, but we thank her for this lovely art representing our 2008 Snarry Games Teams.


    *Dial up users: beware of large image under cut, Rated G












    When the dragon soars and the phoenix dances, the people will enjoy happiness for years, bringing peace and tranquility to all under heaven. )

    Thank you, [info]sealcat!

    2008 Art Games Medal Ceremonies!  
    Today we recognize the hard-won achievement and dedication of artists and their teams who strive for excellence in fanart and Snarry. I know that every Champion worked hard for the good of their team and they all deserve highest marks for their efforts. We were all lucky to have won something during these Games.

    However, in the competition we set out to do, the Snarry Games Judges (you, the readers) have voted to score these teams, both having shown up to these Games with the most stellar of performances, allowing one to edge out the other for Gold.

    Ladies and gentlemen, our GOLD MEDAL WINNERS, with a total of 606 out of a possible 675 points:




    Team Dragon!





    Congratulations to our 2008 Snarry Art Games Gold Medal Winners!



    Team Dragon )



    And our SILVER MEDAL WINNERS, with a total of 590 out of a possible 675 points:



    Team Phoenix!






    Congratulations to our 2008 Snarry Art Games Silver Medal Winners!

    There is always, always, always something to be thankful for.  
    Dear Friends of Snarry:

    Hi. My name is [info]djin7, and it's time that we begin to say goodbye to the 2008 Snarry Games.

    This was an amazing year, and the Art Games once again showed that the most talented people are still within the Snarry fandom. We had 50 truly exquisite pieces of art, and as always, great 'crack art' & interviews. We were able to post twice daily for nearly a month, and we have a great group of artists to thank for that.

    Also, many Champions, past and present, helped this round of the Games with pimping and reccing, and commenting. Our hope always has been to help facilitate a sense of community in this fandom, hoping to keep the SS Snarry sailing on happy waters. When we see how fantastically supportive past champions are, whether author or artist, it makes all our hard work worth every minute spent. Thank you, all!

    I ran across a quote that reminded me of fandom; and of Snarry in particular:
    "What moves men of genius, or rather what inspires their work, is not new ideas, but their obsession with the idea that what has already been said is still not enough."
    (Eugene Delacroix)


    No matter what the poll results, each artist brought something brand-new to Snarry, and gifted us with an ever deeper appreciation for the fandom we love. Severus Snape and Harry Potter continue to inspire us all in new and exciting ways: may we always be this rich with inspiration!

    Before we announce the medalists for the 2008 Summer Art Games, I would like to take this time to thank some people who really went above and beyond the call of duty for this round )

    The scores are great, but the real reward for our artists are the wonderful, thoughtful comments from the readers )

    The Snarry Games was invented to celebrate the rebirth of Walking The Plank )


    Stay tuned for the final announcements! Our third annual Snarry Games Art Tribute Video, a fabulous concept provided by our most illustrious Snarry Vidder extraordinnaire and Snapecast Editor, [info]chaeche. You will also find posting instructions for Walking the Plank, final mod notes, some closing Games art as a tribute to both Team Dragon and Team Phoenix, and of course, the moment you've all been waiting for: The 2008 Snarry Art Games Medal Ceremony!

    Thank you!


    Cheers,
    [info]djin7

    It's nearly time!  
    Dear friends of Snarry,


    Tomorrow, the mods will begin to take down the Judges' Polls. We will begin from the oldest first, so you will still have a few hours to get your votes in, or change your existing votes.

    How to change your existing vote: After you vote in a poll, you can change your answers by clicking on the poll number, and then clicking the [ Fill out Poll ] link at the top left of the page. Your previous answers will come up and you can change them from there. Don't forget to click 'submit poll' to save your new answers!

    It will take a short time for the numbers to be counted, but soon thereafter, we will be presenting the Medals to Team Phoenix and Team Dragon. You can play catch-up here at our MASTER LIST.

    We also have some Closing Games art to show you once the polls have closed. Stay tuned.

    Thank you all for joining us for our Sixth (6th) Snarry Games, and our Third (3rd) annual Art Games!

    The Mod Squad.

    Break for Election Results!  
    Snarry fans!

    The 2008 Snarry Summer Art Games are nearly over!

    Due to the (understandable) overwhelming coverage of the Election, we'd like to take the night off, and post the next Art entry tomorrow morning.

    We do this to prevent any piece from getting lost amidst a sea of political posts, and we wish everyone in the U.S.A. good luck in their pursuit of happiness!

    You can also take this time to catch up on older entries, using our handy *Wrap Up/Recap Posts*

    We only have 6 entries left, which will be three days of posting starting tomorrow, then a short voting hiatus, so the Judges can catch up. Very soon thereafter, we will count up the polls and award the Gold Medal of Snarry!

    Stay tuned tomorrow!
