best artist & art...but first... [12 Mar 2006|11:10pm]

solarisday

The Harry Potter Oscars began two months ago when I saw an ad for the real life Academy Awards on MSN. As I looked at the ad I had the idea that a similar thing could be done in the Harry Potter fandom - an occassion to celebrate the best of this wonderful fandom.  I wasn't sure how the idea would be received, so I decided to run it by jasoncourtney the very next day and ask her opinion.  Needless to say she thought the idea had merit.  And hence, the Harry Potter Oscars was formed.  Two months, many submissions and a lot of work later we now have what would appear to be some of the best - if not the very best - of what the fandom has to offer.

However, it could not have been done without the aid of many wonderful people.

We would like to offer our most sincere thanks to augustfai who provided our beautiful layouts. She volunteered when we asked for a layout designer and her layouts surpassed our expectations, tremendously. I recommend you visit her journal. She writes fanfiction as well. 

We would also like to thank dreamergraphix who graciously made the initial bannners for the awards. She makes stunningly beautiful graphics and I also recommend you visit her journal to peruse them

Our thanks as well to mayflo who provided suggestions for additional art categories which were very well received. She's an excellent artist and her journal is also worth visiting.

I'd personally like to thank jasoncourtney who supported my silly idea and stayed up just as many hours as I did to make this community a success.  Her excellent videos, icons and fanfiction represent a broad spectrum of various fandoms but they're all well-worth perusing.

My thanks also go to divafied101 who helped us to tally the votes from hposcarsubmit and hpnominations.

The mods and I would like to thank all the users who provided useful input with their comments and suggestions. Without them this community would not have been a success.

Finally, we thank the users who voted in surprisingly large numbers. You definitely aided in this communtty's success.

Thank you all. 

Graciously Yours,
solarisday

final thought and comments:

I posted this letter to the community earlier this evening, but I thought I'd repost it to give you a chance to see it if you didn't earlier.

I'm also again providing the link to the nominations video, created by jasoncourtney, because I think it really is that good and you really ought to see it if you haven't already.  Don't forget to leave feedback if you do.

The comments at hpnominations will be unscreened so that the nominees can see all the nice things everyone had to say about them.

A master-list of all the fics, as suggested by bennmorland, will be posted some time in the coming weeks.

The colors of the winning banners can be changed at your request.

Nominees may request nomination banners to show that you were nominated for a category in this community.  Also - and I cannot stress this enough - no hotlinking, please, which means right-clicking on the image of the banner and linking directly from the image's URL in the image's properties to another site, ie: your journal. Save banners to your own computers and then upload to your journals for viewing. If any of the more technologically challenged among you require assistance in this matter, don't hesitate to ask.

The final # of votes was 4,219, making macondo who guessed 4,000, the winner of our little 'guess the # of votes challenge.'  

To the many, many people who voted: thank you!

Finally, please leave us comments or feedback to let us know what you think - the good, the bad, the ugly - and how we can improve next year's Oscars to make it a bigger and even better event!

Now...without further ado, we present to you tonight's final awards.
