And the Winner of UWOL #6 is...

This final Challenge of the year was full of surprises, from the initial shock of the theme announcement to the judging round. The results of the self-judging were so interesting to me that I am going to post my thoughts in a longer separate thread, where we can have a more extensive side conversation about the judging process. I’ll also post the commentary that I received from the player-judges at that time as well. But right now, let’s keep it short and sweet and uncluttered! And extend our congratulations to...

The winner of UWOL #6…

“Isopod” by Markus Nord

Congratulations! And I might mention that it is our first winning UW entry. Excellent work, Markus!

Our first runner-up…

“Art of the Night” by Per Johan

Good work, Per, bringing your video magic into the city!

And our second runner-up…

“Get to Bed!” by Cat Russell

Nice job on a sweet and lovely film.

Congrats to all of the players for a most uniquely interesting Challenge round and for a great close to an excellent first year.

Congrats to you Markus, Per & Cat!

It certainly was a tough theme this one and you all came up with exceptional entries.

Well done to you and all the other participants for managing to rise to the challenge set by our crazy Meryem. Let's hope she is more gentle with us going forward.

Those were great entries. Markus: I don't know if I can ever eat shrimp again! I didn't know they were transparent. Actually that was a beautiful shot. Yours is a win well deserved.

Per Johan: We are so used to seeing beauty in your work no one should be surprised.

Cat: You ought to be ashamed of yourself. Keeping all those poor critters awake so late and depriving them of much needed sleep just so you can achieve such an original, entertaining, imaginative and funny response to the challenge of video in the night!

You did good. Real good. Congrats on the recognition (Uh, and the achievement too) to all 3 of you.

Congratualtions & well done to you Markus, Per Johan & Cat, i really enjoyed your films.
Well done too, to all other entrants. This was a really difficult theme, so to have so many really high quality videos really shows how the whole team is going from strength to strength!

I have really enjoyed this round, my first & definately not my last.

See you all in February.

Thank you...

First I need to express my feelings… I’m sorry Bruce! (I know it’s another thread but I needed to say that…)


WOW… This was a fun thing to read in the morning… I don’t know what to say.
Thank you all for voting on my film, this is what I wish for in every contest, which is what pulls my forward. This challenge means a lot to me, this is the best spot to try new ideas and concepts and I’m glad that my beloved Baltic Sea got some recognition, cause that is a sea with an ecosystem that is on it’s edge of collapse. I dedicate every minute I can to show it’s beauty and I hope that my films one day can make a difference in people’s minds.

Per Johan and Cat, congratulation to achieve really good films in a tough challenge.


Tack så mycket!
Markus

Thanks to everyone!

I'm very humble that I got votes from you, my uwol-friends on this entry! As I had said before this was a real tough one!!!

I will say a BIG congrats to both of you: Marcus and Cat, you was on my winner list!

Thanks again to everyone who has participated in the challenge this year, I think you're all winners. This community has been a second home for me and I have learned a lot from you guys over the last year. I can't wait for February and UWOL-Challenge '08 will start!

Markus big congrats on this one fella. You deserved it fella, it was a good solid piece of film making with a nice helping of wow thrown in for good measure. I'm glad to see an underwater piece win the UWOL too, begining to think we should change it to OLOL and hey it just doesn't have the same ring huh!

Congrats to Per and Cat too.....nice one guys.
