Fan Fiction Contest - Freaky Friday!
What if one day you woke up to find out you were in the body of your favourite character and they were in your body? What crazy things would happen to you both? This is what this contest is about: Fan Fic writers are invited to tell us what swapping bodies with a character from any fandom of their choice would be like. Rules: Write a short Fan Fiction about your body swap experience with a character in a fandom of your choice. You must put YOURSELF in their body, and the fandom character in your body. We want to see both characters facing this freaky incident. You now posses their body and all their powers, but there are limitations. Pleas

This year had us worried! How could we possibly top the awesomeness of 2009's "Be Fella's Valentine Coloring Contest" which garnered over 8,000 amazing entries?!

After brainstorming with resident Contest Mastermind, `betteo, we came up with a new idea where deviants would be able to create and submit their contest entries right on the contest news article. Bam! We hoped this would give us the edge, and once again, the community blew our expectations out of the water. Over 45,000 entries were submitted in just two weeks and we were amazed at the sheer creativity and imagination behind each entry.

Our sincere thanks to all who participated! You really proved that the deviantART community knows how to show the love. Check out the top 100 winning entries below — their creators will soon be exactly four stress balls richer!

Your Lovable Judges,
$trowlandson, $laurenkitsune, $reiiz, `betteo, and $Heidi

A note to our winners: Please hang tight! A deviantART staff member will be contacting you shortly to arrange shipment of your Emoticon Stress Balls. Thank you for participating and congratulations!

That reward isn't big at all and I can't believe people still haven't gotten their prizes.

It was just a base image of a pixel grid that everyone got to use.

Just out of curiosity, were the 100 winners suposed to recive something? some kind of prize mentioned above? Like a random batch of emoticon stress balls? I'm wondering beacuse I am one of those winners, an I have yet to recive anything. Its not the fact I dident recive anything that bothers me, Its the fact that i am being compleatly ignored by those who organized this contest. I have tried to make contact a number of times, and have yet to get a responce.

I dont care so much for getting anything, just the fact that I was chosen was nice enough. I just dont think its right being ignored.

heres my submision:
