A week ago we posted a friendly contest to gOOify Mike Chambers charming poonum. There was a ton of great entries – many of which made me laugh out loud. We went through 3 rounds of judging, based loosely on creativity, humor, title and execution.
In the first round, each of our 5 judges (AKA gskinner.com Flash developers) each nominated 3 entries as finalists. The nominees were:
Just me (near the bottom)
In the second round, each judge cast 3 votes for nominees other than the ones they chose in round 1. The votes from both rounds were tallied to find a winner – but we wound up with a surprise tie between Sumo Mike and Fat Kid (apparently we have a soft-spot for obese Chamberses). In the final round, Fat Kid Mike squashed Sumo Mike to take the title. Congratulations to Patrick Pietens of flashaddict.nl for olympic-level gOOification – he will be receiving a free copy of the gProject panel as a reward.
Great work by everyone! Here’s a list of all the web accessible entries we received. We also received a couple of entries by email from Saverio Caminiti and Mads Bjerre which were included in the judging.
