We've concluded the judging process for our summer Sight & Sound animation contest! Many thanks to all of the entrants, the judges, my contest co-runner Nathan Wells, and our contest sponsors:

Without the generosity of companies like Dragonframe and Brickstuff, having great prizes for these contests wouldn't be possible. Both of them make excellent products that have a lot of use for brickfilming, and I encourage you to give them a look even if you haven't won something from them in the competition.

Without further ado, the results:

1. Draw by Mighty Wanderer
2. Sounds Like Trouble by nswihart
3. Honk Honk! by VN

4. Tech Dog by sillypenta
5. Always on Time by BrickBrosProductions
6. Ocean Treasures by Onecrasfilms
7. First Day on the Space Job by BrickMaker
8. Face Swapped by Formal Lens
9. A Camping Trip with Dad by brickorbrack
10. Strange Happenings by TopBrick Studios

Watch the full list of (YouTube-available) entries on YouTube here!

Thank you to our judges Nathan Wells, Thomas Evans, and Chris Boyer for contributing their input in the process. Because it as a close matchup, we couldn't reach a true consensus and had to rely on mathematical averaging of our rankings to determine the winning films. We enjoyed watching all 22 entries, and it was neat to see people make an effort at sound design, an area often neglected in brickfilming. It wasn't easy to pick a the winners. The quality of entries is good, and it's just not possible for five judges to reach a consensus on more than a top ten. Thank you again to everybody who made a film for this contest!

Here's a chat transcript of the awards chat.

Re: Sight & Sound Winners!

Congratulations. There were so many great entries this year. I wish I could have made the top 10, but I understand that it was hard to chose which ones to win this year.

Congratulations to everyone that made the top 10.   I was so happy Mighty Wanderer won. His brickfilm was one of my favorite entries.
