    Winners will receive their award badge and a summary of the comments they received from the members once i´m finished with the summaries

    Charging from the viewscount the both award threads had,i think there was quite some interest for them,so i guess the low number of voters may be a result of the way in which i handled voting (having to write all votes down,voting openly),maybe i´ll set up a little poll system next year (although i like the idea that the candidates get some cheering words from the community =) )
    Congrats to all Winners!,
    and thanks for creating such great stuff and making the flash community and flash development move forward and let the world know what flash can be used for (besides animations,websites and rich internet applications)!
    Also thanks to all who participated in the nomination and voting threads and also to those who didn´t get on fourth place in a categorey or got missed out in the nomination phase but still contributed so much to the community (i´m looking in tonypa´s direction to make an example ).

    Hope everyone had fun with this and we´ll have even beter candidates to vote for next time

    A huge well done to everyone who won, all really deserving winners, and all perfect examples of why our little games community is so good.

    I'd really like to thank everyone who voted for me and 1c1p. Even though it's only a bit of fun, it's still great to have your peers and people you repect voting for you and liking your work ( Although 2nd place in the coder section ??? C'mon guys, that's just silly and not deserved at all )

    I think the major upset was dayDream winning best artist. I really didn't see that one coming

    I'm totally with Tom's view regards the voting, I really thought that a lot more people would have voted. It's quite suprising that so many regulars here didn't... It would be a pity for it just to have been a zero effort poll.

    Anyway, thanks again, well done to the winners and a massive thanks to Tom for putting it all together and running it so smoothly.

    Wow. Thanks everyone who voted for my game engine!

    I don't take the best flash game programmer award that seriously since everyone in that category is very talented, and this time I got singled out. But it's nice to be recognized of course. Congratulations to the the other winners.

    tom, looking forward to the award badge

    Hey ! exciting !

    Thank you everybody, of course for your votes, 2K would have never existed without Flashkit support, but mostly, thank to all contestants : making such quality and addictive games creates passion, draws attention to flash capabilities and raise the quality bars

    I am happy that i discovered Flashkit a while ago : it gave me the true meaning and benefits of the word "emulation"

    Thanks again !


    ( looking forward the little things to put on the website too )

    EDIT : emulation, in french, means the synergy created between people working on the same thing, it is positive ( just to clarify in case the word has a different meaning in english )

    Congrats to everyone who won, and especially, to everyone who was nominated, and even further, to everyone who makes FlashKit the thriving community it is today.

    Thankyou for voting HA2 the most addictive game, its really amazing to have something you've worked so hard on appreciated in the way that HA2 has been.

    Thanks again, and thanks for all my other votes (second in teams, third in programmer) they were unexpected! (I had in my mind that noone remembers me =)

    Again, congratulations to all the other winners.

    Grats for everyone in the top places, you have deserved it

    Of course for your next projects, you cant lower the level anymore.

    I hope next year we will have even more and even better games to choose from. I would also think if Flashkit could promote the idea a little next time (perhaps placing link on the homepage or in the newsletter), it might get wider response.

    And thanks Tom for making this happen

    A late reply but better late than never A big thanks to everyone who took part, and who spent the past year making great games for us to waste time with! It's disappointing that more people didn't vote, but as an inaugural awards things are looking bloody fantastic for next year!

    A big round of applause to Tom who has proved, without needing to, why making him a mod was such a good idea.

    Long may we all at flashkit gotoAndPlay() !

    yep,it was a sweet contest,glad everyone had a nice time with it =)
    squize just told me bout this japanese(?) blog which featured all entries/winners with screens and ratings:

    the babblefish translation says it writes
    "Most human work wandering FlashGame"
    about heli2,cool!

    and it also says:
    "it is lovely modelling 3d"
    "in tv game flat bed upper it is quick"
    about kart racer
    isn´t that awesome?

    bubblefish is always good for a fun reading =)
    anyway,liked it a lot to see the contest featured in such a nice way =)
