The blog will feature blurbs about all of the winners, as well as lists of all entries by author, alphabetically, by pairing, etc. If you mosey over, you will also be able to ogle all of the shiny and gorgeous winner banners that AngstGoddess003 created. Please visit and find out a bit more about our winners.
In addition, tomorrow, Monday, October 26th, at 9:00 PM EDT, we will be posting a small set of Honorable Mentions. Those will also be posted on the blog, pretty banners and all.
This contest turned out to be bigger than we ever could have imagined. By the end of the five-week submission period, we had validated 120 entries; we officially read 147 submissions. Our first, and biggest thanks, goes to our judges. These four gals - AngstGoddess003, Legna989, MsKathy, and SorceressCirce - ended up reading around 70 entries apiece. This is far more than any of us anticipated, and we owe them big for all of their very had work.
Our second thanks goes to all of you who took the time to read, review, and vote for the entries. Voting turnout was fantastic through all three rounds.
And last, thank you to all of the ladies who submitted such amazing entries. When we first had the idea for this contest, we thought it would garner us a couple dozen new Jasper stories, maximum. Instead, we were flooded with submissions from the day the contest opened until 11:59 PM the night the contest closed.
We appreciate every person who participated in some way and made For the Love of Jasper such a success.
