Title: DDE Fiction Competition Winners Announced!
Post by: Zach on 12 January 2010 03:23 PM
The moment that hundreds of you have been waiting for has arrived - after careful deliberation, we have selected three winners for the HailingFrequency.com Digital Deluxe Edition Fiction Competition!

We recieved over 200 entries to this competition, so as you can imagine, it has been a grueling task to read all of your stories and then try to decide which should win.  In fact, we had to make 5 passes, gradually eliminating those that would not win, until we were finally left with our winners.

So - without further ado - the winners of the Fiction competition are:

BLZBUB - Read his winning entry here (http://hailingfrequency.com/boards/index.php/topic,1994.new.html#new)
honeymane - Read his winner entry here (http://hailingfrequency.com/boards/index.php/topic,1995.new.html#new)
Gaffadin - Read his winning entry here (http://hailingfrequency.com/boards/index.php/topic,1996.new.html#new)

Each of the winners above will recieve a copy of Star Trek Online: The Digital Deluxe Edition from Direct2Drive - codes will be e-mailed to them shortly.

At this stage, we would also like to credit some of the entries that made it right down into the final pass - we can call them the runners up, and while we have no prizes for them, we do feel that they deserve credit:

 Grateful thanks to the Hailing Frequency staff for picking my humble entry. :startrek110:

'Grats also to honeymane and Gaffadin on their winning submissions, and kudo's to the runners up. I've read them and must say that I would have picked them over me so...good thing I'm not a judge here! lol

Once again, thanks Hailing Frequency!  :startrek089:

I guess a thank you would be the right gesture :-)

It's quite cool to see that my stuff is interesting enough to make it through several sorrings, and although I hoped for a place on the podium this is quite great too :-)

Thanks to the readers and staff who voted for me!

Also, on a side note....I needed for time (not that there was none, I just found this very late). I literally made this in less than an hour before realizing I miscalculated the time-zones and wound up 8 hours short... :-)

Wow, I entered and enjoyed doing the writing but didn't think I had a real shot at it.

Thanks very much guys, I'm glad you enjoyed my story.
