Our sincerest congratulations!
So! After a little over 14 months, we're FINALLY FREAKING DONE. Now, I realize (and have admitted several times) that the primary reason for such a crazy ass duration is my own fault. I don't have any good excuses. I will say that us losing Magnus did have a good deal to do with me just not wanting to think about or deal with the tournament, since he was one of our finalists, but nevertheless, I should've been more active in getting this thing done. But now we can finally put this baby to bed for good. Huge congrats to the winners and thanks again for all of the contestants. This is definitely the biggest tournament I've ever done and will probably ever do.
That's right, I'm going to say it right now, I do not think I will be doing another IC tournament. It's just a lot more work than I'm truly willing to put into it. I'm not saying I will definitely NEVER EVER do it again, but I will say, don't expect it.
Huge thanks also to our judges, Cal, Danielle, Alan, Karim, Scott, Kit (who stepped in for a short time) and of course, Rob (Godix). We miss you buddy. And huge thanks to Liz for helping me out any time I needed it. Also thanks to those of you who reached out and offered help when things were looking grim for the future of the tournament.
I forgot to add one more thing. This isn't a specific prize but more just an overall honorable mention (and I would encourage the other judges to do the same, if they feel like it)COORDINATOR'S FAVORITE: Silk_SK's Round 1 video
Of the 90+ videos created in this tournament, Silk's Eva video set to Time's Arrow by Thursday is probably my favorite of all of them. It was also one of the first videos made (I wanna say within the first week). I still watch it to this day. He did a freaking amazing job with the song and should be applauded.
