Huge thanks to everyone that participated and/or was involved in this Special NES Weekly Contest, this went marvelously well and definitely give everyone an incentive to organize more 'out of the box 'competition of the like on VGS. I will personally thank BortLicencePlate and CasualCart for helping us in making this contest a success, and to BeaIank for all the great work she does for the VGS NES Weekly contest.

Congrats Mr. Robot!

Bert's masterpiece "Bearcat_Doug sucks" is still my personal favorite.

 

My colored dinosaur should have won "best interpretive art piece" for my artistic spirit. The Colorodo crew @SuperJimtendo and @JamesRobot crushed it though. Congrats guys!

Dope!  Thanks a heap for the unique charms.  And for the record, this is my first weekly NES contest win (as unorthodox as it may be) since I started playing in 2014.

Thank you to the events and graphics teams for putting this on.  And congratulations to the other contestant winners.

The Videomation contest was an experiment that worked big time and produced one of the most entertaining threads ever. It should definitely be brought back every year.

 

I know I can't draw but it was a lot of fun. Hopefully it does come back again next year.
