It's finally that anticipated time we've all been waiting for!!! (Including myself)
I must apologize for the super long delay in revealing the winners to this contest (i'm horrible at hosting contests) but a lot has happened since the contest has ended but i'm financially stable (for now) and free to work on prizes.

Judging this contest was very difficult in itself too! There were just too many amazing entries >3<
Just have to say I loved every single one of them!

Okay, enough talk, I'm sure you want to know who won or if you were mentioned in here, where you placed ;)

[CE] Animelia High's Summer Vacation by Wiki234
Score: 20
Just look at this masterpiece! I absolutely loved the creative underwater effect taking the ordinary beach scene to a whole new level! It gives the picture a dreamy and beautiful and euphoric.
The characters look super cute in her style too. And yes the bathing suits match and she got all of their personalities and relationships spot on!! I'm amazed how she did the coloring and lighting and everything in mostly one layer.
Apparently everyone else liked it a lot too cause it also won People's Choice Award XD

Contest Entry - Summer Vacation by Paskiz

I loved this one due to how fun and exciting it looked. Yuki and Kimani genuinely look like they are having a great and fun summer vacation.
Plus its something that's not beach related! lol I love Kimani's hair in Yuki's face XD
Great work!

Most "Memorable": :iconnaxy-ah:
[Contest] Kanami Summer 2016 by Naxy-ah

The original idea of having poloroid photographs of their vacation to keep for good memories was genius! Great idea.
It's ready to go in a scrapbook XD

Best Use of All Characters: :iconlemon-lark:
This one took a looooooong time to debate since I had to choose between this one and another that used all of my characters. Don't worry, I loved both of them!
Happy Summer! | Contest Entry by Lemon-Lark

This entry was really cute with the whole group jumping in the air. It looks like an iconic photo or banner announcing "YAY! Summer Vacation!"
I also love how these particular bathing suits match the most perfectly with each characters down to style and color!

Most Artistic: :iconkritshel:
For contest by KritShel

Love the mature design of Yuki (hoping thats who it is lol), the anatomy and pose is great but i love more the coloring style and the cartoony background with the minimalistic border, look like it should be on a summer greeting card. :)
Very well done!!

Thank you all so much for participating in this contest, it means a lot!
I really do love every single entry! You all drew and portrayed the Animelia High Cast so well.
Lets appreciate everyone who unfortunately didn't place but still deserve all the recognition and love!
Hope to see you all again in next years contest!!!
