Monthly Award Packs Mar. 21st, 2005 @ 12:31 PM Reply

I just mailed out the award packets for the top five contributors from February. In case you didn't see, our panel of judges picked these submissions as the five best from February:

Interactive Buddy v.1.01
Bunnykill 2
-Play-
Valentine's Day Special
X-Men:Dark Phoenix Rising

Each of these authors is receiving a prize pack including a certificate of award (complete with embossed gold NG tank seal), a Newgrounds t-shirt and a check for $250.

Shock-Value, the creator of Interactive Buddy, chose to turn down the $250 award. He asked instead that it be donated to The American Cancer Society. We have honored the request and NG is now ranked as a "friend" to the ACS (minimum "friend" donation happens to be $250). It really feels good to know our awards are not just helping Flash authors, but are helping others as well! I don't want to put pressure on any future winners, though - you've earned whatever prize money you receive. :)

I also sent out the $100 check for the voter of the month, who is receiving a Newgrounds t-shirt as well. Yay!

Congrats again to the winners! In less than two weeks our panel will be deciding the top five contributors for March!

Congrat once again to the winners!

That certificate sounds awesome, Tom. Any chance of showing us a picture of one, or is it specifically for the eyes of the winners only?

I know not every flash animator will make flash to get money. There are reasons I can think of depending on the problem with the animator or a problem with some other animator or anything like that. Shock-Value made a very good flash turning down the $250 award is very generous, even though I feel he deserves the money for the excellent flash he made. Well, it's his decision and I respect that fact.

Heart of gold, that man. It's an inspiration to see someone that kind and thoughtfull.

I also sent out the $100 check for the voter of the month

I think you should make an archive of winners for the two awards.

It's nice that the guy donated to the American Cancer Society and all. A lot more work needs to be done against cancer.

Out of interest, and because I'm thinking about how fast I have to move with my animation projects to attempt to qualify, is this contest going on all year?

I plan to continue the contest for as long as we can afford to. If we ever have to tighten our belts, it is possible some day the prize money could vanish and we would stick with the award certificates and t-shirts. I would rather see the prize money and number of winners increase, though. :)

I'd be happy with just the certificate under normal circumstances, but I'm a starving student who needs to convince thier parents that he CAN make money over summer by sitting on the computer all day. ^_^.

Yeah. I'll have to get my projects finished and on the portal some time soon

Everytime Tom posts, there is a shit load of really interesting news.

That ShockValue dude is a cool guy. First place, first NG contest of this type, first "real award", and he makes a truly nice gesture. That's really heroic in a way. And those little "certificates" you guys are doing ? Totally freakin' awesome man. I wish I had one of those at home.

NG is moving forward, to a brighter future !

Hmm, thats really nice of Shock-Value to do that. I probably wouldn't do the same thing because Im not that considerate of anyone else.
/me is a selfish bastard.
