    Default Blizzard Global Writing Contest Winners

    The winners of the first ever Blizzard Entertainment Global Writing Contest have been announced:
    The first ever Blizzard Entertainment Global Writing Contest is now complete!

    We would just like to say how impressed we are by the overwhelming number of high-quality entries we received. Ranging from epic to earnest and hilarious to horrific, your stories conveyed true devotion, passion, and insight. The judges went through several rounds before selecting the finalists, but in the end only the big man himself, Chris Metzen, could choose the winning entry. We would like to thank all of the contest entrants for the time and effort that they put into their stories. It is always a pleasure to see our fans demonstrate their immense creativity and talent!


    The grand prize winner will be flown to Blizzard Entertainment headquarters to meet the Blizzard creative writing staff, and will be the owner of a brand new shiny (and pointy) Frostmourne replica sword by Epic Weapons.


    Grand Prize Winner!

    Now we just gotta figure out if any winners are from BF or SC:L so we can laugh at them for being nerds.

    Had it not been for having a 10 page paper due for Psychology class,
    I would've participated. I actually had a great idea for a Starcraft story.

    Oh well -- I'll probably write my story over the summer,
    after reading up on some additional SC lore.
