Round 21 awards are posted featuring Emma and Hook from the show Once Upon a Time. I absolutely love this show and Hook/Emma are one of my favorite ships right now, so enjoy and congrats to everyone!
Round 22 is open for submissions with a new codeword. If everyone could email me after they submit
an entry, that would be great. Freedback isn't sending me all of my emails at the moment, so it would be greatly appreciated.
Hope that you're all doing well and see you soon! :)
Oh by the way for those of you who were asking, this is my son now all grown up at 3 1/2 years old. He's in preschool now!
Round 21 is now open. I'm hoping to recieve enough entries to judge round 21, but if not this will end up being the last round, which makes me quite sad.
The codewords for round 21 are "If you're afraid of losing your happy ending" and "That means you found it". This lets me know you read and understand the rules. I will have 15 spots open and if you need a saved spot let me know. I would like to have the round closed in 2 weeks, so hopefully everyone works out entry-wise. Good luck everyone!
I'm going to start judging BOTB rounds 11-20 next, then after that I'll be opening round 21. I'm hoping that there are still some vidders out there and that I will see some of you very soon. :)
By the way, my son Aiden is going to be 3 1/2 next month. Crazy, huh?
The round is currently at 11/15 entries. I won't have internet access at home until the middle of next month so the round will stay open until then just incase I get a last minute entry. Otherwise, let us just consider it closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted! I'm looking forward to watching the new vidder's entries! Welcome by th way. :)
Until next time... *hugs*
Galadriel, these are for you. Sorry about the mess up.
Sorry for this round taking so long. It's been a very long busy last couple of months. Hopefully everyone had a good holiday season and a great 2013 so far.
Round 19 awards are now posted. Hope everyone likes them. :) I do like how these awards turned out. ;) Round 20 is now opened with a new codeword and submit page.
Hoping to get things moving along quicker this round! I'm having a baby in about a week and a half, so that's going to slow things down, but I'm going to try my best. :) Speak to you all soon. *hugs*
Strawberrybisque, this is for you:
Strawberrybisque: Sorry about that! I sent an email to Rose so I'll have those up for you as soon as I can.
Sorry about the lack of updates. I was first having some issues getting onto bravenet, then my boyfriend and I got a bit busy with starting to move into our new place. But after everything, round 18 awards are finally up. Thanks to Rose for the awards. I love the way they turned out. :) This was a strange round for me. I've never had a round where there hasn't been enough entries for either best couple or best romance. It just didn't feel the same!
Round 19 is open for submissions. The codeword was inspired by my new favorite show. ;) What can I say....I'm a bit addicted to it.
Looking forward to the new submissions! *hugs*
I added one new affiliate: Welcome to Siwann @ Fanvid Contest .
Hopefully we can get this round closed before too much longer! Does having it open for one more week sound fair? :)
I'm so sorry for the awards taking so long this round. Jessica has gotten very busy with her real life and told me that she wouldn't be able to help with the site for at least 2 rounds which made me very sad and I hated the thought of going on hiatus, but luckily for me the very wonderful Rose of Rose's Whispers is filling in for Jessica for the next two rounds while Jess takes a break. So a huge thank you goes out to Rose. *hugs* So anyways, round 17 awards are finally up and ready to go. :) The awards feature one of my favorite musicians Rachael Yamagata. If you've never heard of her, she's definately worth checking out. One of my absolute favorite piano playing ladies. :)
Round 18 is now open for submissions. :-D The codeword has changed, so like always please go check out the rules page for the new codeword before you submit and drop a note in my cbox after you've submitting a video. Hopefully we can have the round closed within the next two weeks so let's do this!
Speak to you all soon. xoxo
Good luck to everyone and I'll talk to you all in the next couple of days. *hugs*
I have 8 spots left, so if anyone's interested please submit!
I won't have internet access again until friday, so hope all goes well with everyone until then.
Talk to you in a few days. :)
The codeword has been changed for the new round, so go to the rules page before submitting. After submitting, if you can tag me it would be very appreciated. :) If anyone needs a saved spot, please tag me and let me know.
Good luck to everyone and see you all soon. *hugs*
Nothing new regarding round 16. I'm still waiting to hear from Jessica to see how things are going with her. Hopefully the awards will be up by the end of the month at the latest.
Rose over at Rose's Whispers made me a very sweet present and I feel very honored to have received it. Thanks hun, you're such a sweetheart. *hugs*
I hope everyone has a great 4th of July and hopefully I'll be back before too horribly long. <3
Update @ 12:30pm: I just checked my email and there was a message from Jessica. Awards should be posted by this weekend if everything goes to plan. I don't have internet access at home anymore, so that might slow this whole thing down, but I am going to try to keep everything going along as planned. If everything goes the right way, round 17 should be open for entries sometime next week. I'll keep you all posted.
I'm hoping to have judging finished either later today or tomorrow morning at the latest. Hopefully awards will be up in about a week or two. See you soon!
I've updated the affiliates page:
Bre @ Primordial Souls: Fantastic art and fiction site. I'm especially a fan of her Buffy art. She has it sorted by season, which makes it really easy to find.
Britt @ All Night Noise: Another great art site. This one features a wide selection of fan arts, tutorials and textures.
Rachel @ Untouched Treasures: An icon and art site featuring Once Upon a Time, True Blood and others.
The entries for round 16 have been updated: 7/15. Thank you to everyone who submitted and you're welcome to everyone who commented on the awards. It was a great round to judge! :)
Keep submitting! 8 more to go. You know....just saying. ;)
Sorry for the delay in updates. Jessica should be back from her vacation before too much longer, so I'm just waiting for her. :) Soon my darlings, soon!
As you can see, there's a new layout. :) It features my absolute favorite pairing on the show Glee. I miss my babies being together. <3 The layout was made by the always wonderful Jay. Isn't she the best? ;)
Hopefully I'll be back before too long with the awards, so talk to you soon. *hugs*
Edit @ 11:23pm: I just now realized that I had a new affiliate that I hadn't added before: .
Edit @ 6:10pm: I received an entry from Jess, so thank you to her. That brings it up to 12/15.
Round 14 awards are now posted! Congrats to all the winners. A huge thank you goes out to my girl Jay for making the awards. *hug*
Round 15 is now open for submissions. The codeword has now been changed, so be sure to go to the rules page and grab the new code then go submit! If anyone needs a saved spot, please let me know. I changed the number of accepting entries from 20 to 15, so hopefully this doesn't affect anything too much. If I end up receiving more then 15 entries this round, then I'll bump the amount back up to 20.
Can't wait for the new entries!
I just wanted to drop a quick update by. Awards are all ready to go, I just need to upload them tomorrow. It's 11:30 right now and I need to get to bed. :) I just want to say ahead of time a big thank you to everyone who submitted for round 14. It made me very happy to know that some of my fellow vidders are still around and interested in my site, so thank you to all of you.
Round 15 will be opened tomorrow, but I am accepting saved spots until then. So if anyone needs one of those for next round, please let me know.
Until tomorrow, good night. :)
I still haven't heard back from Caprica yet, but I have a feeling that I'm going to need a guest award maker this round, just until I can find out if Caprica's still going to be my partner in crime here. If anyone is interested, please let me know ASAP. I want to get this round finished as soon as I possibly can so that round 15 can be opened. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in helping me out, or you know of someone who would be interested. Thanks! Any help would be very appreciated.
I updated affiliates as well: Welcome Amy @ ADF Productions
Speak to you all soon. <3
The round is currently at 15/20 and unless I receive more submissions by tomorrow I will be closing the round sometime tomorrow. I'm still waiting for Rose's submission and then I'll start judging. I'm currently trying to get a hold of Caprica, so hopefully that won't slow down this whole thing. Depending on what happens next round, I might change the amount of submissions to 15 per round. 2 years ago having a limit of 20 worked, but now I'm not so sure about it.
Until tomorrow, Kimberly
EDIT @ 5:01 pacific time: I just received Rose's submission, so thank you hun. :) Depending on what happens tomorrow, this might be the last entry.
Entries have been updated again. 15/20. We�re almost there! If any of you are vidders or have friends who are vidders please invite them to submit! I would love to reach 20 entries, but if not I will be closing with what I currently have by Thursday at the latest.
Affiliates have been updated:
I also wanted to bring over my new presents. I�ve won some videos for my twilight/speak video that I made back in 2010. This was the first time I�ve submitted a video in two years and I felt very honored to have received a bunch of pretty awards for it. I guess I still have the touch. :) Here are the three top awards I've won for my video. After being out of the loop for as long as I have, judge�s choice and a BOTB award feeling pretty darn amazing. So thank you Yolanda @ Ultimate Universe Awards, I really appreciate it! :) You can watch the video here: Most of Me
I also updated my affiliates page:
Welcome to my two new affiliates: Rose @ Rose's Whispers Productions and Andrea @ Buffy & Angel Art.
Sorry for being gone for so long. My personal life got the best of me. I moved about an hour away from where I was previously living, so that's been a change. I got a new job about 6 months ago. I'm now a manager of a consignment (second hand) store. Yay! I've grown to really like it. Um, lets see...I have my driver's license now which is huge for me, because up until about a year and a half ago, I'd never driven before. I'm getting my first car in about a month and I can't wait. Ohhhh and my dog had puppies last summer, so I now have 5 dogs. Pretty hectic, but everything's going pretty good for me. I have the best boyfriend in the world that I really really love, a little family that means the world to me and a pretty good life. :)
I re-opened round 14 because I lost all of the entries when I changed emails, so please re-enter. I hope most of you are still around and vidding and that I didn't lose too many of you. Go submit your entries for round 14 and if you need a saved spot, please email me at email@example.com and I'll save one for you.
The affiliates page has been updated. Welcome my new affiliates:
If any one else wants to affiliate, please leave me a message in my tagboard.
Here's to a great new round and a great re-launch of DM. :)
See you soon with the results!
You're welcome to everyone who has already picked up their awards. :) Wolfpup: I received your entry. Thanks!
On a better note: Round 13 awards and Caprica's awardsa are now posted. *jumps of joy* (Again, about time huh?) I love how they all turned out, and hopefully you do too!
Links have been updated for a couple of sites...and yeah. I think that's it. I'll send an email about the awards out tomorrow because it's late here for me! Round 14 will be open tomorrow. Everything will be finished then. :)
EDIT @ 12:00am pacific time - The awards page doesn't seem to be working at the moment. I'll have Jay take a look at it and hopefully it should be up and going tomorrow. :(
Round 13 is now closed for submissions. I'm going to try to judge the round next week on one of my days off, so we'll see.
Caprica's special round is now opened for business! You can find the submission form on the left sidebar. She's trying to get at least five entries for the round. Ten would be even better. ;-) You know you want to! The codeword is part of a quote so just google the quote to find out the rest of the question. If you need help, send one of us an email and we'll send you the quote. Or I will at least. Hehe. ^__^
See you soon!
I was going to open it over the weekend, but I just couldn't decide on a theme for the round/awards/codeword. I finally saw some pictures online yesterday from a photoshoot and I loved the look of it, so I thought why not. I like this actress a lot and the pictures were so pretty! :)
Please go send Caprica an email for her special round. It should be a lot of fun and she's a sweetheart. :) If it makes it easier, send me an email and I'll forward it to her. If enough people submit (10 perhaps+?), this could become a monthly event. You know you want to do it! ^__^
Affiliates have now been updated: Doro @ Spikeaholic Graphics, Artemisia (Sarah) @ Morbid Simmer and Sarah @ Becoming Carpathian Awards.
My award maker Caprica will now be holding a special round once a month. May theme will be video roulette and she needs your help. There are two options to choose from:
A) Send a list of your top 10 fandoms and top 10 artists to Caprica via her e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. She will then send out assignments to whoever sends her an email.
B) Caprica will send you one of her favorite fandoms and a song she's dying to see vidded to said fandom. Sorry no Twilight videos will be accepted.
Videos must be in by May 11th and awards will be posted May 30th at the latest.
Anyone interested? :)
Round 12 was finally judged today (WOOOOOT!) and I sent the results off to Jessica so she can make awards. There were some fantastic videos this round so thank you to all of you for sending your videos in. :)
There are two new affiliates: Lottie @ Lottie Productions and Tasia @ Daisy Fever. Go check them out!
See you soon with round 12's awards! ^__^
Affiliates have been updated. Go check out Destiny @ white-Lace.Net. :)
See you all soon with the awards....and might I mention a new layout! ^__^
Round 11 awards are up! They feature Margaret and Andrew from the movie "The Proposal". The awards were made by Jess (Caprica) and the caps were provided by Jay. A huge thank you goes out to both of them, so thank you! I hope everyone likes their awards. :) Round 12 is now open for submissions. Make sure to check the rules for the new codeword. Affiliates have now been updated: Marie at Damned in Darkness Awards // Bloodqueen and Jenni Lou at Daydreaming. Welcome ladies. :)
I'm now off to go take my boyfriend's dog for a walk, so I'll talk to you all later. Take care and get those videos in!
I'll try to update affiliates later tonight. I know I have at least one or two...don't worry. I haven't forgotten about you!
See you all soon with the awards!
I'm very excited to say that the first best and the best awards for rounds 1-10 are now posted! Congratulations to everyone! Some of the winners I no longer have the email for, so any of you know them.....please let them know they have a surprise waiting for them at my site! These include: Owen Smith (last I checked this person owned a Veronica Mars website), Guardian (vidder, the last one I remember seeing of theirs was a character study of Dawn from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and sweetcrimefighter (I know that several of us have had this vidder submit at their sites before!).
Round 11 is now open for submissions. SUBMIT SUBMIT SUBMIT! Go go go! I know you can all do it! Hehe. There's a new codeword on the rules page, so please go check that out before submitting your video. If you can guess what movie the codeword is from, you get a virtual cookie! :-P How can you say no to that? ;-)
I updated the affilates page with Jay and Mariana's new design site: Broken Gravity. Go check it out! I adore them both to death and they're both very talented!
Hope you're all doing well and happy 2010 by the way! :)
I'm finally out of school. My last semester! I just have to take two more math classes, then I graduate with an associate's degree, which I'm very excited about. I've been taking classes at community colleges for too long now, so I'm very happy to be almost finished and the proud owner of an AA degree. In other news I've been busy with work too. Since the beginning of December or so, I've been working basically full time at my job, so that has been keeping me busy lately as well.
I will hopefully be finding time soon to finish judging the BOTB round. Soon my dears...soon! I just need to find a good chunk of time to sit down and work on it. Tomorrow night perhaps? We will see. :)
In other news, I'm absolutely obsessed with the movie Avatar right now. I've already seen it twice and I would absolutely recommend it to everyone if you haven't seen it yet. Defiantly one of the best movies of 2009 in my opinion. Plus I'm totally in love with Michelle Rodriguez now. She's fantastic and quite a sassy actress. :-D
Merry Christmas and happy holidays everyone! Hope you're all doing well. *hugs*
SO sorry this has to happen, but I need an official break for a couple of weeks or so. I'm really busy with school right now and even though I'm down to one job again (long story...not by me), I'm still getting about 30-35 hours a week.......and between everything I don't exactly have a ton of free time right now. I don't even want to think about finals yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have all of Thanksgiving week off from school, so hopefully by then I can take the site off of hiatus and start (and hopefully finish) judging the BOTB round. I just didn't expect to be this busy right now. Having school all morning, then work till at least 5pm at night if not later (if I'm closing at work I'm there till 9:30pm plus)doesn't exactly put me in the mood to sit down and do anything besides relax at night. Sorry to say I don't find judging relaxing. :(
I have a couple affiliates to add to the site. Don't worry I haven't forgotten about you. Don't un-affiliate with me! I will add you next time. Promise!!!!!!
See you all soon! :) (if anyone needs me for anything or just wants to say hi, I do check my tagboard every couple of days. I'll still be around. ^_^)
The affiliates page has finally been updated: Arabella @ Regretful Sorrows, Anne @ SpuffyProductions, Cynthia @ Cosmiic Horiizons Awards, Kayla @ An Eternal Dream and Jasmine @ James McAvoy Central. Welcome welcome. :)
See you all soon!! (hopefully with BOTB awards by next week. I hope.)
I still haven't judged the BOTB round. I will get around to that soon. I really will. :( I just need to figure out where to do it.
There are new affilates, but I don't have time to update them right now, but I will next time I update which will HOPEFULLY be soon. I should have some free time this weekend and tomorrow, so between doing math homework, doing my laundry (hehe) and work, I'll update the site again and attempt to start judging the BOTB round. Just be patient. This will be my first BOTB round that I'm judging, so if it does take some extra time, I do apologize in advance.
I have been busy vidding lately when I can. This is my latest creation. Enjoy!
The affiliates page has been updated: Lottie @ ::FriendsAddiction::, Tracy @ Kindly Unspoken and Bre @ Primordial Souls.
I also added my twitter to the side bar. If you're interested in following me, feel free.
Thanks to everyone for leaving all the comments about my new layout and the round 10 awards. Glad you're all so happy with your awards!!
As you can probably tell there's a new layout up. It features the band Tegan and Sara, who are one of my favorite bands. :) I saw these pictures from the studio when they were working on their new album a few weeks ago, and I fell in love with the pictures so I asked Jay if she could make a new layout for me, and here it is. Hope you all like it!
The awards for round 10 are finished, I just need to upload them to photobucket either later today and tomorrow if I get a chance, so look forward to those. I'm thinking of having a BOTB round every five rounds so it'll be a bit easier for me to judge. What do you think?
Hopefully I'll be updating later today with the awards, so see you all soon.
EDIT @ 4:38pm - I was going to try to get the awards up before my second job tonight, but it didn't quite work out. I'll upload them when I get off work tonight. *fingers crossed*
EDIT @ 10:24pm - The awards are now up on the awards page! This round features the band The Veronicas, who are an Australian twin duo. Caprica aka miss Jess made the awards and I think they're beautiful! I love how the templates turned out this round. Hope everyone likes their awards and congrats to everyone. Your videos were all great. ;-) Next round will be the BOTB round, so hopefully it won't take me too long to judge that. If all goes well I'm planning on round 11 opening in mid September. Please don't send me any email submissions until I open the next round. Thanks. Again, congratulations to everyone who won awards!
The affiliates page has been updated as well. A huge welcome goes out to Victoria @ Royalty in Black, Veronica @ U-S.net, Jessica @ Fandom Mania and Holly @ Manhattan Winter Awards.
Take care everyone and Hopefully I'll be updating again soon!
Affiliates have also been updated: Trischia @ Twilight/Titanic/The Notebook The O.C./Gossip Girl/One Tree Hill High Quality Clips Downloads, StrawberryBisque @ Visions in Videos Awards, evangelin @ Love's Bitch Awards. Welcome to all! :)
Hopefully I'll be updating again soon with awards. ;-)
Round 10 is now open for submissions! If you need a saved spot, please let me know. Otherwise go submit! I would love to have round 10 closed in about 2 weeks and completely finishing with judging, etc in about 3 weeks so I can start the BOTB round before school starts up at the end of August.
Also if you only received honorable mention, please submit another video this round. Don't feel discouraged! I give everyone at least one award one way or another, because I know how it feels to not win anything and then I feel guilty if I don't give someone at least an honorable mention award.......and yeah....that's about it. :)
Hopefully I'll see a lot of familiar vidder names this round! I can't wait to watch your videos. :) (By the way, thanks to the ones who have already snagged their awards and left comments on my tagboard. You're sweethearts! ^_^ Glad everyone's liking their awards so far.)
Round 10 will be hopefully opening tomorrow, or if it doesn't for any reason it will be opening the following day which is Tuesday the 28th of July.
See you all soon when the new round is open. Congrats to all the winners of last round. I had such a hard time choosing winners, so you may notice that some categories have fourth place winners. Keep up the great work you guys! I enjoy watching all of your videos. ;-) *HUGS*
Hopefully awards will be up within a week or so, and round 10 will be opening very soon. BOTB round #1 is going to happen after that. If anyone who has had a BOTB round so far (Amy...Mariana..Christy...etc...) could send me an email or something with tips on how to do a BOTB round, I would appreciate it. :-D I'm sure it's pretty self-explanatory once I actually start it, but hey...I've never done one before. :)
See you all soon with the awards for round 9!!!
Buket is no longer making awards for me sadly. I'm going to miss her, even though she only made awards for one round. She was a sweetheart to talk to. Jay @ Holiday From Real is making awards for me this round, so a huge thanks goes out to her for that. You rock girly! I adore you for being such a nice, sweet person. *HUGS* If you are interested in making awards next round, or you know someone who is, please send me an email at email@example.com. Thank you. :)
Affiliates have been updated. Check them out! All of the new sites are great. ^_^
The new round will be open soon! I promise. ;-) Thanks for being patient everyone. The next update won't take as long...I hope.
Round 9 is now officially closed if you haven't noticed. I haven't started judging yet, but I'm going to try to judge tonight because starting tomorrow, I'm going to officially have no free time so I may be a bit slow with judging/updating for the rest of the summer, but I will do my best to have everything updated and uploaded in a reasonable amount of time.
I added one new affiliate to the site: Lisa Marie (moccamary) @ Mocca Mary which is a video site, as well as an award site.
Also I was awarded with these beautiful awards for my new video "Heart" recently from Cesar188 @ Shipper Awards. I feel very honored to have recieved these, so thank you very much Cesar188. :) If you want to watch my video that won best video, go here.
Two new affiliates have been added: Yuna @ stilldollx3 and Christa @ Learn To Be Lonely. Welcome!
If anyone knows who KRL2008 is, could you let them know that they have a saved spot and if they could submit ASAP that'd be great? Thanks. :)
EDIT @ 6:27pm: I added another two affiliates: Jenn @ Shiny Nickel and Steff @ Tired of Being Sorry. Welcome ladies. :)
EDIT @ 10:23pm: Round 9 is now closed thanks to Gina and Shannon!!!! I'll start judging as soon as I can. (KRL2008 please submit ASAP. If I don't hear from you by the end of the week (Sunday), I'm going to either not disregard your entry, or I'll move it to the next round. Please and thank you.)
See you all soon with the results!!!
Round 9 is now open for submissions!!! Be sure to check the rules pages because the codeword has changed this round. Happy submitting and I can't wait to see your videos!
Buket is currently working on round 8 sample awards, and hopefully soon the finalized awards will be posted so if all goes well, round 9 should be up by next week or so. *fingers crossed*
I also added a new affiliate to the affiliates page. A big ol' welcome goes out to Mikaela @ Always-Daydreamin'. ;-)
Speak to you all soon!!!! xoxo
I'm finally done judging round 8. I sent Buket an email last night, so hopefully if all goes well awards will be posted before too long. There were some great entries this round! I'm thinking of just making the entries an even 20 videos per round. It seems easier to me, and last round took longer than I planned on it taking, so maybe it would be for the best. Any input on whether it's a good idea or not?
Hopefully I shall be back soon. It's finally summer! Yayyyyyyy! :-D
I have affiliates to update, which will be added to the site next update. Promise!
Speak to you all soon. I'll leave you a parting gift: My new song obsession. "Broken Songs" by Jim Ward featuring Miss Tegan Quin. <33
