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!
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!
