2007 Winter Games MEDAL AWARDS CEREMONY!  

Original poster: snarrymod

Today we again recognize the hard-won achievement and dedication of authors and their teams who strive for excellence in Snarry.

As always, it is the fans that are really the winners here. Our Champions all worked hard to entertain us, to allow us a glimpse into different worlds and characters that we hold near and dear. We thank them ALL for this gift they share.

However, in the competition we set out to do, the Judges (you, the readers) have voted to score these creative authors and their teams, both of which have alternatively stunned and excited us, allowing one to edge out the other for Gold by again, the smallest of margins. So without further ado:

Ladies and gentlemen, our GOLD MEDAL WINNERS, with a total of 754 out of a possible 864 points:

Team Wartime!

Congratulations to our 2007 Snarry Games Gold Medal Winners!

Wartime )

And our SILVER MEDAL WINNERS, with a total of 741 out of a possible 864 points:

Congratulations to our 2007 Snarry Games Silver Medal Winners!

Congratulations, all!

There were many people involved in the making of this year's medals and banners. Thanks go to: [info]glockgal for her fantastic original art, and to Milica (Melyannam) for the medal and banner designs/bases. We also owe big thank yous to [info]pervart for putting them together and personalizing, and also to [info]reddwarfer for personalizing the banners. Thanks, all you artistes!

Please take your medals home (temporary hotlinking allowed only) and take good care of them, they were hard work for the folks involved.

Any discrepancy with null votes was averaged. All individual author vote tallies are available, upon request, to the authors privately, via email to snarry.mod @ gmail.com. Thank you.

Extra thanks and praise go to [info]meredyth_13 for coming up with an absolutely brilliant system to make the counting easier!
