And The Winners Are....

The Challenge had an interesting batch of eight stories to be reckoned with.  Harry was able to transform into his Animagus form and eventually to get back out of it.  Our eight judges transform their votes into three stories that won for their authors.  And the winners are….

The award for Best Overall goes to:

Harry Potter and the Troublesome Transformation by mdauben

The award for Transformation goes to:

Harry Potter and the Summer of Flight by potterfan2008

The award for Survival Skills goes to:

Small Problem Big Trouble by luukjn

The People’s Choice Award goes to:

Harry Potter and the Summer of Flight by potterfan2008

The winning stories are now prominently listed in our Featured Stories section.  The Challenge category is back open.   Those of you that have multiple chapters or need to do some editing may continue at this time.  If your story is completed, please ensure it is edited and YES, as completed.

The 2013-2 Challenge will start April 1st.  You thought you were fooled once.  So, he’s really back this time.  His name’s….

I would like to thank my many judges who worked hard for this Challenge: A few are new; I welcome aboard.  Thank you AM, FF, JG, LK, LS, NS, S/, & SM.  You know who you are. Thank you very much for all that reading and judging. Your time to help out is quite valuable. The Challenge would not exist if nobody judged them.  No one judge picked all first place winners.  But a bunch were correct adding in the second places.

Some authors have asked if I would tell them how well they did in the judging. If you wish, e-mail me and I will tell you your results.

*** An added note:  A couple of judges noticed and mentioned to me that those authors that said they had betas reading over their stories scored better in the Challenge and overall ratings than those that didn’t mention betas.  Remember, ANYBODY can be a beta; a teacher, best friend, a friend on the bus, a mentor, parent, sibling, co-worker, sweetheart, UPS driver, old Mrs. What’s-her-name next door, ANYBODY!

Thanks so much for the votes! And congrats to the other winners. The stories were all great this time around. If I can second what Sir Ollivander said - having even one other person read over you story can make such a huge difference. I know it's made my stories much better :)

Wow! I'm really honored to receive best overall on this, my first challenge story. I have to totally agree with Sir O. also. My story would have turned out nowhere near as good without the help of my wonderful beta. Thanks, Arnel!

My congratulations to all of the winners, and a special thank you to everyone that submitted a story for the challenge. I enjoyed reading them all and wishing I'd had enough time to submit one myself. Well done!
