DVC/UWOL Charity Challenge - The Winner!

Thanks to all who made the first DVC/UWOL Charity Challenge a success! As some have said earlier, it was lots of fun, and we got some great films to watch. Everyone who participated is a winner!

Just as important, a hearty “Thanks!” to every person who donated. The $635 raised here will be a welcome gift to some worthy charity.

Big thanks to Meryem Ersoz of UWOL and Dylan Couper of DVC for bringing this together. Thanks to Chris Hurd for giving it a home right here on DV Info Net.

And thank you, Guy Cochran of DveStore for donating the prize for the winner: a $250 shopping spree!

Voting was all over the place, which was expected given our diverse backgrounds, but it was really close at the top. Because of the spread I think we’ll do things a bit different than usual…

Here are your top vote-getters!

2nd Runner up
Chris Barcellos – “The Dead of Winter”

1st Runner up –We have a TIE!
Tom Sherwood – “Cold War”
Jay Silver – “Freeze”

WINNER of the First Annual DVC/UWOL Charity Challenge
Per Johan Næsje – “Norwegian Wood”

Congratulations, Per Johan, on a beautiful entry! You not only receive the prize from DveStore, but you now get the happy job of choosing a charity to receive the $635 donated! We will be contacting you about your charity and your prize.

More congratulations to our wonderful runners-up, and to every one of you who submitted a film. As you can tell by the feedback they were all great!

That’s it for now! See you here next year!

Wow, Per!! DVinfo's first dual challenge winner! Couldn't happen to a more hard-working or deserving fellow...

Thank you for all you do to make DVinfo a more informative place and a stronger community.

And congrats to Jay, Tom, and Chris for making a batch of fine films. All fun to watch.

And to everyone who made a film or kicked in a few bucks for the Charity Challenge -- huge thank-you. What an excellent community effort all around.

Oh and also thanks to Lorinda, who did most of the heavy lifting for this -- tallying votes, keeping everyone on-task, and cheering on the players throughout. While Dylan and I went out for drinks. So cheers to her for pulling together all the various strings. Thanks for all you did, Lorinda!

Congrats to the winners! Per, Tom, Jay and Chris. And how "cool" is that... 2 winners from UWOL (okay, Chris does both regularly) and 2 winners from DVC, Sweet!

And a hearty salute to all who participated and for Chris H., Lorinda, Dylan and Meryem for providing such a great platform for film makers and film watchers alike.

O.K. Per.... are you going to let us in on what charity all of these pennies are going to?

Until next time ...

Cat

Cat, I will decide within a couple of days, and I will let you all know!
Organizations who work for saving endangered species or homeless and ill-treated animals, is what's on my mind.

Congratulations to the winners! This is a tough time of year to pull this sort of thing off - no doubt - and I think we all deserve a pat on the back for just following through. I can't tell you how surprised and delighted I am to be sharing 2nd place in such stiff competition. Thanks for the votes!

(As an aside, I still owe many of you a review as my family and I dropped off the earth sick this past week and hope to get to it soon, as well as more behind-the-scenes info on my own entry which had its fair share of challenges. See you soon!)
