Who will be left uttering the phrase "It was an honor just to be nominated!" All is revealed as we unveil the results of contest number eight: Manipulation! (da, da da Daaaa!)

Every vote is accompanied by an explanation of how I voted, and why. This is in order to solve the problem of comments being TOO nice and not enough constructive criticism.

I'd give an acceptance speech, but I'm no good at public speaking. ;o)

Thanks to all of you who voted for me, and congratulations to the winners, and...and...

I don't know what I'm going to do to celebrate those semicolons. It'll have to wait until this weekend, when I'm on vacation. :o)

Congratulations. I'm particularly pleased to see that some of the ones I felt most deserving did indeed get recognized.

Also, I have to say congratulations to the Lord of the Rings-- 7 years ago when I heard of the project I was instantly on pins and needles just waiting for the day I'd see it. Now it wins 11 for 11... awesome.

Congratulation to you Sam and to all the rest of the winners. :) It was well earned! This contest was a lot of fun. ^_^ Now I'd like to know how you did your edit Sam. ;-) I've been thinking about it ever since I saw the image the first time.

Great job to all that submitted and those that gave helpful advice along the way. This was a great contest idea Klas and thank you for sharing these special images with us! Thank you to all the image mods for doing such a fine job with the tons of images they sorted through and for selecting the pre-judges, which also did a fine job of sorting through all the great images presented! And finally to Caedes for providing us the medium for presenting such great art and the non-stop growth of the greatest site on the WWW. Cheers:-) Time to crack a cold one;^)

Thank you Darryl. It was worth all the work with my selection of the images. I enjoyed it immensly to look at all the great stuff people made with them. :) I'd like to thank the image mods again for the fine work they made preparing for the contest. I could not have done my part so well without your good advice.

Congrats to you too Tracy, and all the other winners. I know this will sound really cheesy, but seriously everyone who took part was a winner here. It was a great contest, and a great joint effort from so many; Grim and Avi who came up with the idea, Klas who supplied the starter images, caedes (obviously), Tracy who helped so much with the organization, all the mods and prejudges who voted, the people who entered and those who gave encouragement and advice, and all the members whose enthusiasm has kept everything moving at a pace almost too fast to keep up... it really is the community spirit of this place that makes it so wonderful.

Also I would like to thank my parents who... *voice drowned out by orchestra, hustled off stage by Billy Crystal...*
