Hello, all! It's time for us to announce the winners of this year's FROGS awards! If you didn't catch our livestream from earlier this evening, you can find it +here. ^_^

First off: thank you to everyone who nominated, reviewed, and voted in this year's FROGS awards, and congratulations to everyone who was nominated, whether or not you won. HPFT is home to some incredibly talented people, and we can't express how glad we are to be part of this community. We hope you enjoyed this as much as we did. :wub:

All of that said: we'd like to unveil our special, limited edition set of chocolate frog cards. We're including small versions of them in this post, but if you click on them, you'll find the full version hidden behind them. ;)  I'll also be uploading the entire collection +here on my deviantart. ^_^  Please use only the mini-version in your story notes, since the full version is so big; however, you're welcome to include the full size card as a chapter image, on your profile/in your writer's journal here, and anywhere else you hang out online. :P

I'm so glad you like them, guys!

I fixed one award and added links in for all the stories. I'm also apparently not quite done making frogs cards :P so I made one for all the finalists that I'm editing into the above post. <3

These awards are incredible, Branden! :wub: Thank you so, so, much to everyone for making the FROGS so awesome, especially to @clevernotbrilliant, @LadyL8@manno-malfoy@PaulaTheProkaryote, @Rumpelstiltskin, and @ShazaLupin for the nominations and seconding/thirding, and to everyone who voted. I honestly wasn’t expecting to be nominated, let alone win, so this means a lot to me. :grouphug:

Congratulations to everyone else who placed and/or were nominated!

:bouncing:

And a shout-out to the staff for putting so much time and organisation into making the FROGS such a fun event. Thank you for making HPFT such a wonderful community that we can all call home. :wub:

Wow! Branwen, those awards are amazing. (I'm not going to admit how long I just spent staring at all of them, but it was a while xD)

 

Thank you so much to everyone who made the awards a success - all the staff who organized it, everyone who nominated and voted, and everyone who wrote awesome stories and/or reviews (so like, all of you). Voting was extremely difficult just because everyone is so talented! ♥

Extra special thanks to those of you who nominated and voted for me/my stories - I was never expecting to see my name in there at all, after being away for almost 3/4 of the year, so it honestly meant so much to me. Thank you ♥

 

I'm so happy to be part of such an incredible community. You are all so wonderful and talented, and congratulations to all the nominees and winners! :wub::grouphug:

I don't even know how you managed to make those awards, Branwen :wub:

To everyone who was involved in the process, thank you so much. I wasn't expecting to win anything at all, so watching the livestream and seeing the tweets was such a huge and wonderful surprise. I'm honestly so so happy to be a part of this talented community. <3

These awards are absolutely incredible, Branwen!!! I don't know how you do it :wub:

Congrats to everyone who was nominated, placed, or won! I already knew our archive was filled with incredible talent, but this most certainly drove that point home :bighug:

Oh my gosh, those are amazing!  I have no idea how you managed to make those, and ALL of them!  Thank you so much!! 

(Really hopes she will be able to figure out how to save them and put them up in places.)

Congrats to everyone who won, and everyone who made these awards possible!  I'm still so shocked that I made it into this amazing group.  I really thought I was totally out of the running given all I've been posting forever is Merlin stuff, and I wasn't sure if it was any good.

Seriously, this made my weekend.  THANK YOU!!

Congratulations to everyone; everyone who was nominated, or was a finalist, or placed, or won-- this small but mighty archive is filled with so many talented people.

And thank you to the staff for organizing these awards; all of the time and hardwork definitely paid off.  I'll have to find time soon to watch the livestream!

Great job, everybody :wub::grouphug:
