so we love prizes here at amplificathon SO MUCH that apparently i have been competing for the very secret award for latest prize post. i think i won it, you guys. \o/

/o\ sorry! (this is all me, [personal profile] general_jinjur - other podmods were not part of this foot-dragging <3 )

because [personal profile] kalakirya is awesome, she (virtually) tapped me on the shoulder, kindly asked what the hell was up with the prizes, and then very graciously made these. so here we go:


for the first place winner of amplificathon 2013 - [personal profile] reena_jenkins!

so it turns out today's prizes had a theme! wait wait that sounds like i was surprised, when of course it was my plan all along. ahem.

i'm always excited by the folks who win the fashionably late award because they are made of enthusiasm! posting to a six-week points-based challenge with your first entry in the last week is probably not the way to win based on points. but it scores you entry into a pretty exclusive club of fashionably-late-award-winners! and considering the exclusive nature, we're awarding a lot of them this year.

congratulations, winners, and thank you for not getting discouraged by the date, and joining in the fun anyway! all of your prize graphics are below the cut, but all of your names are: [personal profile] applegeuse, [personal profile] chasingriver, [profile] illutu, [personal profile] inmyriadbits, [personal profile] itsadrizzit, [personal profile] lunate8, [personal profile] myira, [profile] nikojen, and [personal profile] zwischendenstuehlen! HOORAY!

now that we've dealt with who posted last, we can get to who posted first! and we have two winners! HOW'S THAT POSSIBLE HOW CAN TWO PEOPLE BE FIRST you ask?

didn't we just get done discussing linear time, and how it's for the birds? well. it's also...confusing? and following a lot of poking at entries and also at poor tired podmod memories, we called a winner, and that winner was multiple. the true spirit of the intrepid award is in not being afraid to plunge right in, and both of the winners embodied that this year! [personal profile] kalakirya and [personal profile] kdheart! congratulations on your bravery and also your lack of procrastination!

winner time again! :)

next up is the GMT-11 prize, for the final podfic posted under the wire, just before the deadline!

i always expect this one to be more hotly contested, but i guess the fact that it does involve an element of chance (what time will podmod wake up and close the fest? honestly, your guess is as good as ours. also, linear time: is it really something we should be endorsing? i'm not so sure, it totally gets in the way of my plans on a regular basis) and also that it's by nature contested when everyone is tired warns everyone away.

well, happily, [personal profile] paraka stepped up and capped the event! and not even on a technicality - it was very definitely still the final day when she posted.

congratulations to this year's GMT-11 winner! YAY PARAKA!

hey hey it's that time! over the next two days, we'll be announcing the winners of the 2013 amplificathon!

/aside where i make a speech in which i say "...but aren't we ALL winners, really?" and get all dewy-eyed.


FIRST UP! BLIPVERT.

if you were watching closely (or watching twitter at the right time), then you'll know all about the bloodthirsty competition that raged to make the shortest possible podfic this year in order to bag the blipvert award. in the process, [personal profile] analise010 and [personal profile] kdheart pushed hard at what was possible to cut while still keeping a recording identifiably a podfic. also, they fostered a friendly rivalry until it became a feud that will surely last at least a few seconds.

We like to give podfics as prizes to the Amplificathon winners, but this year we had a low number of winners submitting requests. What we decided to do instead was ask our volunteers to record a number of the requested stories so they could be gifted to *all* the winners (and participants! and anyone reading this, really!) as a collective, instead of to the individuals who requested them.

There's a variety of fandoms represented here, and a variety of readers as well! We hope there's something for everyone. :)

click me for podfics (and covers!) )


On a final note, your mods would like to sincerely thank everyone who responded to our request and created podfics, covers, and banners for our winners, and also everyone who wanted to but couldn't help. Seriously, we can't thank you enough! *group hug*

Posting your first podfic to the 'thon during the last week of the challenge earns you the Fashionably Late Award! This year our winner is [livejournal.com profile] escherzo who popped in, took a look around, and joined us fashionably late!

[livejournal.com profile] escherzo declined to provide a list of things he'd like podficced, but we do have a shiny graphic for him!

We also have a second Lindworm Award winner (because this mod fails at copypasta D:)! We are calling [personal profile] laurie_ky and [personal profile] alchemynerd co-winners of the award for the single longest podfic, with Laurie having a slightly longer podfic than our first-posted winner with an amazing 12 hours, 36 minutes and 25 seconds!

Laurie didn't post a podfic request initially so we don't have a podfic for her, but I'm going to link to her request just in case anyone is interested in the stories she requested or has them in their podfic queue already:

http://amplificathon.livejournal.com/1066208.html?thread=6462688

She's been kind and understanding about this mistake. Thanks Laurie! Sorry this took so long to post.

The Whisky & Lemon Award goes to the person who posted the most cumulative minutes of podfic to the challenge. This year's winner is [personal profile] reena_jenkins, who topped out at a whopping 51 hours, 54 minutes and 48 seconds!!

I bet you're regretting those 5m12s that you could have recorded to make it a nice even 52 hours, right Reena? JOKES. ::ducks tomatoes::

For [personal profile] reena_jenkins!

What we call those brave Amplificathoners, who sally forth, paving the way for us by posting the first podfics of the challenge, is 'intrepid'. This year we're honouring two people who posted in the first few hours of the challenge, one to the LJ comm and the other to DW.

Congratulations to [livejournal.com profile] bessyboo (LJ) and [personal profile] dodificus (DW) for being our bravest -- and quickest! -- participants.
