Hey all you nerds, we've compiled all the results and the votes are in, we have our 2017 Nerdvember winners. There were so many awesome entries this year, and it was very difficult to narrow them down to three. But here they are in order...
In first place: NerdTron by Oky - Space Ranger
Like every year we can always expect the heavy hitters at the last minute, and every year I'm blown away. I didn't see this entry until I woke up the next morning, and the grin was ear to ear. What a fantastic mashup of Nerdly, Voltron and iconic vehicles of the 80's, well played sir, well played.
In second place: Bob Ross by Palixa And The Bricks
This was no "happy accident". Bob Ross taught millions to paint, and inspired this brilliant entry. And if the name sounds familiar, it's because Palixa And The Bricks won second place last year as well (always the bridesmaid...).
In third place: Nerdis Brickler's Day Off by Ochre Jelly
Ferris Bueller's Day Off is an all-time favorite movie of mine, and is there anything more quintessentially 80's? It's one of those movies that you start watching no matter what scene it is. Bueller...Bueller....Bueller...
I wish I could send prizes to everyone that entered, you're all amazing. But these entries got a lot of votes too and deserve to be acknowledged.
I'd like send a huge thank you out to the judges this year. There were so many amazing entries it was NOT easy to narrow it down, they did not have an easy job and I appreciate their time. And of course it's not much of a contest without prizes so I'd like to send totally tubular thumbs up to all of the sponsors, you're rad!
Thank you all for a totally bitchin' Nerdvember, see you next year!
