The Victor Ludorum Prize for the best overall performance was won by 510bhan (Sio) who entered pretty much every event and became renowned for her speed in the live online events! Sio wins a copy of Movie in a Month from WCCL, along with all her other loot. Congratulations to her on a hugely successful Olymp_Inks!
Congratulations to all our other winners as well, 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 Ma100 (Mairi) for organizing and running the whole shebang!
Speaking of which, if you won any events in the Olymp_inks, please contact Mairi by forum personal message (PM) now to claim your prize/s. She will need your full name, your email address, your physical address if a prize is a book or CD (if unsure, include this anyway), and the name/s of the prize/s you won. We (and our sponsors) will then get your prize/s out to you as soon as we possibly can.
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 - WCCL alone donated well over five hundred dollars' worth - and it would be nice to return the favour wherever possible. Please check out all of our sponsors' products via the links above, and you can also see most of WCCL's range on their excellent WriteStreet website.
In view of its popularity and the almost universally positive feedback received, we hope to repeat the MWC Olymp-inks again next year. If you have any comments or suggestions on the Olymp_Inks, including any ideas for how it could be improved, please leave them on this forum topic or as comments below. Thank you!
