To say that we were overwhelmed by the response to the contest would be an understatement.
As a result, as time ticked on and we drew closer to tallying votes and judges' scoring, we decided to honor a few additional entries and authors, in addition to our four main winners.
Tonight we will be announcing a series of "Honorable Mentions." Entries that did well with the judges or voters - but didn't quite reach the top - or entries that stood out for another reason.
Below you will find honorable mentions in the following categories:
Judges' Mention (general) - 3
First Time Writer Mention - 2
Host Mention: Favorite Jasper / Bella - 1
Host Mention: Favorite JILF - 2
Host Mention: Favorite JILS - 2
Host Mention: Favorite Use of Edward -1
Thanks again to all of our entrants for submitting such amazing works.
Interested in which entries made us cry the most? Which ones we loved even though they had the strangest pairings? Our thoughts on anonymous judging versus open voting? Elle and LVP will both be posting entries in the next couple of weeks, highighting some of their personal favorites and thoughts on the contest in general.
