The Victor Ludorum Award
Winners: 510bhan and Chrissie
Prize: The Brain Evolution System from Inspire3.

The Victor Ludorum Prize was actually a dead heat between 510bhan and Chrissie, but because we only had one prize, Sio very generously waived any claim to it - so the copy of The Brain Evolution System went to Chrissie. Congratulations to both of them, and many thanks to Sio for helping get us out of an awkward dilemma!

For more info about winners and runners-up, including the final points board for the Victor Ludorum Award, please see this topic on the forum.

Congratulations to all our winners, and thank you to everyone who took part, whether as a competitor, judge, marshal or forwarder. We couldn't have done it without you!

And a very big thank you indeed to the redoubtable Mairi Angus (Ma100) for organizing and running the whole shebang!

Winners of all prizes should receive them soon - please keep watching your email inbox. If you haven't heard anything by the end of this week, please get in touch with me or Mairi.

One last thought is that if you won a prize, it would be appreciated if in due course you could review it and/or send a testimonial. Our sponsors have been extremely generous with prizes, and it would be nice to return the favour wherever possible.

In view of its popularity and the almost universally positive feedback received, we hope to repeat the MWC Olymp-inks again next year.
