While Pico Day is my favorite day of the year, my least favorite is sorting the winners! It's all about the highs and lows, right?
I want to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who participated. It really is the best gift anyone can give, and I think lots of folks on NG get the same sort of joy I get from it. There were lots of visual treats this year!
1st Place, $1500:
Nogfish has made some of my favorite (and underrated) Pico Day submissions over the years (here and here) so it's exciting to finally dub him THE BEST of the year.
2nd Place, $1250:
Earlier this year I commented on how pretty Gonzossm's stuff looks, so lucky me, his prettiest movie yet is for Pico Day! Another favorite by him happens to feature Darnell.
3rd Place, $1000:
Some of the best artists on NG came together to make this epic Pico collab. It includes a new piece by last year's winner, Zombie-Pimp!

Winner of a Wacom tablet for best mouse-drawn movie:

Runner-up Games, $200 each:
