Wow, what a list! Our sponsors really stepped up and provided an amazing collection of cool prizes for you. Please, please give them your support. And be sure to click on the linked items below to see photos and detailed descriptions of each item in the prize pool.
We’re going to distribute the prizes similarly to how we’ve done it in the past. The grand prize winner goes first and gets to choose 5 items off of the list, 1st runner-up goes next and chooses 4 items, 2nd runner-up chooses 3 items, 3rd runner-up chooses 2 items, and the remaining items will be distributed among the honorable mentions (we’ll draw randomly among the honorable mentions to determine the order of choosing). We use this method of distributing prizes so that the winners end up with items they can use. We’re going to ask that each winner choose only one prize from each manufacturer. For example, the grand prize winner chooses five prizes, but only one from each manufacturer.
We still have around 30 photos to post over the next few days. Once everything is posted to the site our judges will begin the process of choosing the winners, which should take about 2-3 weeks.
